DESERT(ED) LANDS

Oil-rich Arab neighbours

Are close by troubled lands,

Yet where are the labouring saviours -

Where are their helping hands?

 

A much-vaunted religious teaching

Seems common to them all

Yet where is its charity reaching

When conflict comes to call?

 

It sees its disciples fleeing

Far off alien lands to roam

Does it see what we're not seeing

As its millions seek a new home?
