An Accident of Geography

I was born on the wrong side of the continental divide
Isolated, alone, outside the Eurozone
In a nation of brutes and refugees from the truth
Under siege unheard I built battlements of barbed words

An accident of geography
Some are born in bondage, others born free

You threw down your anchor on my barren shore
Crossed no-man’s land with a box of chocolates in your hand
Braved the Rottweilers and scaled the ramparts high
De-fused the landmines armed only with kindness

An accident of geography
An accident brought you here to me

(Bridge) Détente of the soul: I feel vulnerable and scared
The sun on my face, the warmth in the air
Small steps forward across the abyss
Open my lips to feel your kiss

Now they’re selling pieces of the wall in every shopping mall
The secret police disbanded, sent away empty-handed
But sometimes I wake at night paralysed with fright
My papers are not in order, tomorrow I will be deported

An accident of geography
Who is an ally, who is an enemy
An accident, an accident, an accident of geography
