From war and famine you fled
To be washed by waves of derision
Hatred and prejudice by a minority spread
Fuelled by selfishness and capitalist greed
They have no compassion for different colour or creed
Cold and lifeless amongst the jetsam of western life
Lies you a small precious jewel
Another victim of separatist strife
Sacrificed by Westminster suits
And a virus of hatred spread by tabloid type
I weep for you and the other lives lost
Whilst the bigots strut and squawk over migrant costs
Armour plated they feel no shame
For the death of a child, for the suffering, the pain
No EU policy is really to blame
But I'll not forget
I will remember your name
It was you who ignited Europe's compassionate flame
