You've read the news stories about the separation of immigrant families in the United States. You will be aware of the message Melania Trump carried on her coat. Poets have responded, from both sides of the Atlantic. Read what they have to say, this weekend, at Poetry24.

You’re So God Like (I.S)

Ahead of the pack
Making someone’s fall
Bringing families to their knees 
Doing it for Allah ? 
No please……………….


You’re so god like

Marching people to death
You can decide who’s worthy
Of life 
And who should have …..death 


You’re so YouTube 

CNN 
Your bitter fame 
Your moment of gory
It’s not in Allah’s name


only yours
