They came by water

They came by train

They came by flight

They came in luxury

But some arrived in cages

All strangers to us and each other


They were stopped at the docks

They were stopped at the station 

They were stopped at the airport

They were stopped in their conditions

Remaining ever a constant

Adhered to each other in isolation 


They saw the looks

They heard the words

They felt the attitude

They smelled the growth

Of those who were resolved

To make Great Britain Great Again
