A sign in front of Liberty of Statue

Hungry and homeless beaten by fate.
Date of opening to be announced soon! '

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Inspired by reading about Greek Colossus, poem 'New Colossus' and recent refugee issues. Though I am stung by my own thought yet have confidence in high ideals of this great country.

    'The statue of Liberty' refusing to accept 'The wretched refuse of the world' presents a stinging satire on the Big Brothers of the world today. A bold commentary. (Report) Reply

    Very well said, possibly the Colossus also cannot digest anymore, the ugly behavior, atrocities and the enmity of this present society. That's why declared a closure. (Report) Reply
