Refugee Blues by W H Auden Say this city has ten million souls, Some are living in mansions, some are living in holes: Yet there's no place for us, my dear, yet there's no place for us. Once we had a country and we thought it fair, Look in the atlas and you'll find it there: We cannot go there now, my dear, we cannot go there now. In the village churchyard there grows an old yew, Every spring it blossoms anew: Old passports can't do that, my dear, old passports can't do that. The consul banged the table and said, "If you've got no passport you're officially dead": But we are still alive, my dear, but we are still alive. Went to a committee; they offered me a chair; Asked me politely to return next year: But where shall we go to-day, my dear, but where shall we go to-day?

Written in 1939, Auden focuses on the German Jews arriving in the UK at that time, though the poem has taken in a timeless quality due to the commonality of its subject. Indeed, it is not until stanza 8 that Auden identifies his Refugees. Possibly he is trying to show the reluctance of the persecuted to identify themselves for fear of further persecution, possibly he is allowing the narrator –we assume a husband – to present the key ideas of his poem without the idea of Jewishness in some way getting in the way of a universal message. He has chosen the title Refugee Blues to link to the protest and subculture of the enslaved Blacks, who developed this musical form in the Southern USA, and has written a poem in which the rhythm and rhyme scheme (AAB) reflects the musical style.
