He Was Only Three

A Story by wordman




He was only 
three years old
when he died

Washed to shore
with the morning tide
his mother and brother
by his side

Searching for
the promised land
turned away
from every land

Boarded a ship
searching for a home
now buried in the hot sand
but he found the promised land...

Very Topical

Tragic and destined to happen as more flee from starvation, death, bombs, et al. Italy is refusing to take boatloads picked up at sea. I always wonder why they don't take them back. The West is closing down. I chuckle everytime I think of a Canadian wall. Great writing. Sad ending.- slc
