Dead Children: No Longer the News that Sells

Headlines change against immigrants again – borders close. One dead boy is forgotton… all too common…

I knew it would happen, borders would be closed, media would turn again on the refugees, and the dead boy on the beach forgotton. I just did not think it would happen so quick…

“One death is a tragedy, a thousand a statistic.”
Immortal words of Josef Stalin.

Walls raised, borders closed,
Hearts harden, crisis weary
No longer stirs hearts passions
Parents of the dead: talking, teary.

Dead children no longer shock being common,
Washed up on beaches from boats, dead adults as well
Peoples fears, not peoples tears, whipped into a frenzy
Makes good headlines once again: news always will sell.
