Makarska, Croatia

“Keep your shithole countries, their pathetic brood!” cries she

With silent lips: “give me your IT engineers, artists

Third-world millionaires, gardeners and nannies

Son of a gun running for shelter from your justice

Send your gold geese laying gold eggs in cages

For you I lift my gun beside the barb-wired wall

Because from scum like you, I want it all.
