Sightless Eyes by David Wilson

Sightless, staring

Arms and legs

Gently washed

By incoming waves


Bare feet

That will never

Skip and run

On freedom’s beach


“The migrant swarm”

“Scrounging benefits”

“Take our jobs”

“Impossible burden”


In ignorance and fear

We step back

Behind barbed wire

Fortress Europe


Choose sightless eyes

That see not death

Nor sorrow

Nor hope
