People are warm and friendly

They all like a hearty laugh.

They’ll welcome you in

With a place beside the hearth.

Who get it all wrong.

With their xenophobia and greed

They sing that different song.

When we are led by the wrong people

This is what we find:

When you close your borders

You end up closing minds.
