Over 400 have been killed in Dhaka
Over 100 haven’t yet been found.
Around 2 point 5 thousand have been injured.
Because The Rana Plaza was unsound.
The rescuers still hunting for survivors
Are losing hope with each new passing day
But slowly this is slipping down the headlines:
These people are all brown and far away.
Three British soldiers killed this week in action
They gave their lives to fight the noble fight
Their names and faces are in all the headlines
How many people died who were not white?
A life’s a life, a death’s a death but somehow
There is a hierarchy of indignation
The value that we place upon each victim
Depends on place of birth and pigmentation.
