Ignore the screams

      Ignore the screams

Lifeboats bobbing on crashing waves

Saving souls from watery graves

Snuggled in our cozy beds

Ignoring truths, covered heads.

Women children screaming loud 

Anonymous, buried in a shroud

Freedom was all they craved

Escape the torture, village razed.

Can we in all conscience sit

In our warm and cosy pit

Or rid us of this depravity

And act with some morality.
