No Room At The Inn... Still?

Half of Syria's "displaced" - 4 million refugees -
Overwhelming efforts by our relief agencies
To give food or shelter; offer help of any kind.
Countries who will take more in are getting hard to find.

There's no place to put them all but overcrowded camps,
In a leaky tent and suffering from hunger cramps,
But those are the lucky ones 'cause they survived the trip;
Slipping out before ISIL can catch them in its grip...

They got past the traffickers who'd sell them off as slaves,
Weren't among the many drowned - an ocean for their graves.
Lucky them.  I bet they're thrilled to make it out alive
Only to be turned away the moment they arrive.
