The War Cry of Natives by William Wright, Jr.

There’s a new wave of huddled masses

Streaming through our ports

Strangers, who bear the full weight of our fears

“Drive them away”

Is the war-cry of so-called natives

From the sons and daughters of old travelers

“Terrorist”

Is scrawled over every proud name

Every doctor, every teacher, every wide-eyed poet

Who dreams and wades into refuge

“Terrorist” is far too small of a word

For the large hearts and minds

Who know, of terror’s full wrath 

© William Wright, Jr.
