Lost at Sea

In response to Scott’s Daily Prompt, Ripped from the headlines

The headline on the BBC news website was.

Channel migrants: Thirty rescued as man dies off French coast.

He was running from fear
From death itself
But
Died alone and cold
In the sea
Because we did not want him
We wanted to be left
To dine in peace
On our cheese and wine
