Mandy Mitchell 1 May 2009 featured poem, poetry Comments Off on Featured Poem: On Xenophobia (May 2008) by Mandy Mitchell

You read the newspapers;
Horror at what is happening;
Disbelief and shame.
I prefer not to look;
Block my ears
To shut out your words.
You say there are people
Laughing and eating
While others are burning.
I think it could be us.
Instead we drive
In our smart cars;
Collect our children
From private schools;
Return to safe homes
And cook supper.
