Jason Dzubow on Political Asylum

  1. A Poetic Response to the State of Our Union

    Last night was the State of the Union address, a speech presidents give before Congress each year to assess where our country has been and where we are going. President Trump's speech highlighted one of his favorite themes--the dangers to our economy and our security posed by non-citizens.

    I recently came across a poem by Brian Bilston, which eloquently rebuts the President's anti-immigrant and anti-refugee talking points, and so I wanted to share it here. If you would like to learn more about Mr. Bilston, check out his website. Without further ado, enjoy--

    Refugees

    They have no need of our help
    So do not tell me
    These haggard faces could belong to you or me
    Should life have dealt a different hand
    We need to see them for who they really are
    Chancers and scroungers
    Layabouts and loungers
    With bombs up their sleeves
    Cut-throats and thieves
    They are not
    Welcome here
    We should make them
    Go back to where they came from
    They cannot
    Share our food
    Share our homes
    Share our countries
    Instead let us
    Build a wall to keep them out
    It is not okay to say
    These are people just like us
    A place should only belong to those who are born there
    Do not be so stupid to think that
    The world can be looked at another way
    (now read from bottom to top)
