Nothing so sensational about the Calais refugee camp evacuation by Debasis Mukhopadhyay

Donald Trump has got yellow eyes

He makes a good protest poem

A poem where red looks redder

And where the subversive Left continues to taste like extra virgin olive oil

Refugees don’t make such poems

They bite into a new twist everyday anyway

You can hear them falling from the faucet

Nothing so special about their ad infinitum teeth

You can see them rolling across the skeleton of map

Hollande told us their ad hoc sky needed indeed a repair

En attendant… they can live & sweat in weather proof containers

Let Jesus help France to keep the whole thing from collapsing

I like Sarkozi I like Trump and I like Left

I won’t write any poem called

 No fun to stay in one place
