Warning Day - Poem by douglas scotney

Fanaticism, Hate, Murder
They don't see existing here
Have driven them to this land
Where Prejudice alone
Would be easy to withstand;

Where,
Because it's a democracy,
And votes,
Every three years,
There's a spike in fanaticism
and ideas to stop the boats;

Where,
Just of late,
I've heard
That word before 'Murder',
'Hate'.
