A Ship Loaded with Children


In small boxes for storage
Precious cargo overseas

Cherished, stolen and sold
Precious cargo overseas

Nestled behind kegs and barrels
Precious cargo overseas

Leaving rifles on alert
Precious cargo overseas

Scrawny, parched and full of courage
Precious cargo overseas

By blue-green gaze and foreign tongue
Cargo's greeted overseas
