Left in the Sewer….Literally

People from Kabul and other provinces wait in knee-deep water behind the Hamid Karzai International Airport gate as they try to enter the airport, in Kabul, Afghanistan, in this still frame obtained from August 25, 2021 social media video.

I’m trying to reach the airport
Via this canal I wade
Knee-deep in stinking sewage
No paperwork, hopes fade

It is a canal for sewage
not just water as said in the caption
Troops just look on and ignore
Without papers most are turned away
