Shame On U.S.

 Tragic images show refugee crisis at a tipping point in Europe | Go ...

I can't help but be ashamed we haven't done our part
Taking in more refugees from wars they didn't start.
People fleeing terrorism, bombings, drone-strikes - death.
U.S. should be helping more...  I wouldn't hold my breath.

Even though the chaos in the region can be traced
Back to wars we started, that's a fact we haven't faced.
We have a responsibility.  Don't like it? Tough.
Yes we send a lot of AID but that is not enough.

Less than fifteen hundred refugees accepted here.
Europe's seen 360,000 just this year.
U.S. must take its fair share of desperate people, too.
Short of war - again - it is the least that we can do.
