Ourselves-Devereaux Frazier

Are the kids alright?

No, not their kids

Not the children from other countries

Our own

Are they alright?

I’m hardly moved by allegations at borders

When we’ve had mass murderers

Of young ages

How about the children we routinely eliminate

All in the name of right and convenience

Is not what we’re doing at the border the same

Why is separating children accepted

And disputed?

It seems that the children are alright

But we, the adults, the decision makers

Have hardly matured past emotion to reason

Beyond trivial pursuits and masquerades

Of caring for people we could never care for

How can we honestly care for the foreigner

When we hate ourselves
