Poetry – Welcome Strangers

Welcome Strangers


From overseas they came

To care for our elderly,

Pick our vegetables,

Stack our shelves,

Deliver our goods

And nurse our sick.


Villified, demonized,

Bullied, denigrated

And driven out.


Low paid, unwanted,

Abused, despised,

Be in no doubt.


In this game

We have no shame.

Without too much lament

We demanded

That hostile environment!
