The world has looked like this before,

Hungry kids in boats heading to the shore.

Running from wars,

Living with scars,

Heading to the reservoir;

A lifetime of poor.

They need protection and our action,

To help them soar,

Into a new life,

Without strife,

Or forced wives or knives;

Giving them hope

like they've never had - for sure!

Their life turned around,

Or so we thought;

The Government with their new stupid law,

Process them coming straight off their boat;

starting a new debate and future war,

with the people that need to collaborate.
