Another tanka

After looking at newspaper headlines and television news coverage of the terrible things that are happening to Syrian refugees, I wrote a ‘found’ tanka. There is no image to illustrate it. If you need one, please look on the Internet – there are so many.

Refugee Tanka

Washed up on a beach

The heartbreaking human face

Of a tragedy

We can no longer ignore

Give them back their dignity
