Capturing Attention

´┐╝Whilst refugees crowd at barbed fences,

journalists swarm the celebrity

Desperate people fleeing is news

for a while

 

but the news cycle demands a new angle

 

Pathetic faces of children

pressed against wire

can only hold attention for so long

 

Enter the celebrity,

cameras snap away from refugees

to the Hollywood goddess

championing their cause

 

Good on her,

may she make a difference

for the children

are still at the fence
