How can we truly imagine your emotions?
The Pain, The Fear, The Cold
Stolen from hot, hot -hot countries
Living with tainted spirit
Still fighting back-instinct so strong
'I will survive.'
In this cold, cold-cold clime
Icy hearts trading through greed
Tables bending and bowing, banqueting
- even dogs get crumbs from the floor
Who gave any human the right to do this to another?

Having just worked on the Emancipation in Glasgow event this poem sprang to mind. I have kept it very short and to the point because no words will ever be sufficient.
