In the Med


Another nameless child
drowned in the Med
while the world ignores the screams
the fear and the tears
and the media calls it an invasion
hostile
malignant
still more
stained and bloated faces
of children
left to die alone
fleeing destruction caused by greed
and religious evil
an innocent child
proven guilty by bigotry
and sentenced to death
for the world has lost its compassion

About Jez Farmer

I am a freelance writer and poet and started writing after raising my two boys as a way of discovering just who Jez is. That is still very much an on-going project but the journey so far has introduced me to many wonderful friends and fellow writers through an ever growing love of poetry.
