Brilliant. Thank you.
I await the Moloney
Nice one, Dick.
Thanks Dick. Brian Bilston is much better than many a previous Poet Laureate. As Anonymous Bosch says, we await the other Brian's response.
Just one niggle: the pedant in me suggests that 'These haggard faces could belong to you or me', rather than 'I'.
I see that I have some fans.Thank you Eddie and Mr Bosch. And, yes, of course I am happy to endorse the poem. It is clever and heartfelt and sums up the sympathy that any right thinking person has for genuine refugees.
Illegal economic migrants pretending to be refugees on the other hand are another story.
