The world has looked to us for leadership and followed suit.
Close the doors.
Punish the desperate.
Render them stateless.
Torture them behind razor wire on god- forsaken islands in the tropics.
Leave them to the mercy of brutal guards, paedophiles and rapists.
Forbid them human rights and its commissioner.
Forbid government accountability.
Smother us in secrecy.
We are the Dehumanists:
Europe has watched us turn towards Hitler and his ‘solutions’ with impunity.
They will follow suit.
And the stark white bodies of children will blind us
In this great dark night of our soul
