Numbered Lives in the Shortest Century

Tear down that killer border
or there'll be no human order.
Put pressure on your rotten States
to stop handling refugees as inmates.
One third of Syria's precarious millions
uprooted, stripped, not to return in eons.
No choice in becoming exiled
only savagery in being profiled.
Because we aren't free when others are oppressed
to watch the life of another be debased
is to hear our own be effaced.
