Syrian Child Forgotten – Dead On The Beach - Poem by James B. Earley

America’s hypocrisy…
This message will teach
Gone is his memory…
In speech after speech
…A Nation ignoring…
His death on the beach

Long gone…that anguish
The emotional outcry
Months later…barely
…Our promise….deny
Reneging commitments
To the child…left to die

Was that pain perhaps feigned
…Some concocted pretense
Rhetorical hobgoblins
….Straddling……the fence….
A future once promised
….Now mired…in suspense

America’s hypocrisy
…Satanic…..outreach
Damning his memory…
In speech after speech
Syrian child forgotten
..Dead….on the beach
