Rhymes & Reasons
And the Children Cry

A lament for the illegal immigrant children separated from their families&hellip'
Children without mom and dad
are now detained, afraid and sad.
These huddled masses (poor and tired)
are yearning to breathe free.
Children with a future here
currently constrained by fear
cannot imagine what's in store
removed from family.
Children without cause for blame
who (on the backs of parents) came
pray to a God who wills for all
that justice will prevail.
