Spectacular poem.

It really lays bare the reasoning behind most of the refugees, I think.

      no one leaves home until home is a sweaty voice in your ear

    saying-

    leave,

    run away from me now

It's easy to look at the refugee crisis from an economic, detached view but I think you miss out on something very important if you just do that.
