There’s a new wave of huddled masses
Streaming through our ports
Strangers, who bear the full weight of our fears
“Drive them away”
Is the war-cry of so-called natives
From the sons and daughters of old travelers
Is scrawled over every proud name
Every doctor, every teacher, every wide-eyed poet
Who dreams and wades into refuge
“Terrorist” is far too small of a word
For the large hearts and minds
Who know, of terror’s full wrath
© William Wright, Jr.
