A lament for the illegal immigrant children separated from their families
Children without mom and dad
are now detained, afraid and sad.
These huddled masses (poor and tired)
are yearning to breathe free.
Children with a future here
currently constrained by fear
cannot imagine what’s in store
removed from family.
Children without cause for blame
who (on the backs of parents) came
pray to a God who wills for all
that justice will prevail.
Lord, have mercy!
