In response to Scott’s Daily Prompt, Right to Health

Can we call ourselves civilised?
If we do not care
For every last person
Who needs it

The Siege of the Stupid

By Scott Bailey © 2017

We have handed over our passport
Battered down the hatches
In a siege of our own designing
Some feeling smug justification
Others wondering if they should have done more
All responsible
All of us
Remember this
Huddled behind our walls
When the hunger strikes
