Autumn Child



Photo Piqsels.com — public domain license



autumn child born naked as the season’s trees cradled in a bed of rotting leaves


there’s a border here


and we refuse to let you pass to reach our hoarded bounty of summers past


for you a silver blanket a food parcel a nylon shelter must suffice


and all you have today are desperate eyes but no voice to argue your plight nor the strength for a fight


autumn child we ignore you now and then won’t understand when years from now you’ll be at our borders once more with hatred in your eyes
