Un-ironed Curtain

Look away, curtains wrenched
across Europe’s borders,
we are pulling,
again,
those dark-patterned drapes.

We shut out the long view –
of shivering marauders,
to claim ring-fenced advantages
just for us to take.

The ‘bunch of migrants’
without drowned-dignity,
denial of freedoms,
Europe once claimed
through victory.
