Death Camps

autumn

In the newspaper today,
words that jumped out,
is written here,
so as not to forget.

Death camps unearthed
at jungle sites,
gruesome discovery,
left to die.

Decomposing corpse,
decomposed body,
body parts,
horrors unearthed.

Mass graves,
exhumation,
empty cages,
their story of horror.

People smugglers,
human trafficking,
smuggled migrants,
human traffickers.

Inhuman acts,
heinous acts,
innocents killed,
atrocities.

Boatloads rescued,
rescued Rohingyas,
rescued Bangladeshi,
temporary camps.

Temporary shelter,
emergency centres,
immigration depots,
detention camps.

Temporary solutions,
human rights champions,
NGO’s,
humanitarian policies.

Compassion,
empathy,
humanity,
dignity.
