Plea by Paul Tobin

Plundered spirits caged in display cases,

their humanity rendered into data.

Serial numbered scientific evidence,

they are excluded from the Dreamtime or heaven,

wherever they should be, it is not here.

You would see your father buried,

or a neighbour, with due ceremony.

Why not return these people?

End their misery

and heal ourselves into the bargain.
