Foreigner in my own land


Foreigner In My Own Land

Dear Mr Blunkett,
I know you can’t see,
but why do you have to
have us all on C C T V.

And now to make things,
a lot worse by far,
we’ve got to carry cards,
to show who we are.

I mean do I look like
I’ve come from out of state,
when all I want is a
bit of real estate.

I mean its our country
and were under the same laws,
but sometimes I feel like
I’ve been born abroad.
