The entirety of Refugee Mother and Child comes together in these last two verses

The entirety of Refugee Mother and Child comes together in these last two verses, and there are a great many ways to interpret it, all of them very sad in nature. This verse highlights the harsh reality of a great many things that are taken for granted very often in the world; how something as simple as combing the hair of a young son can be a daily ritual in one country, and be equally as symbolic as decorating a grave in another. The analogy is frighteningly powerful, and creates an image that is simply impossible to not contemplate deeply… which is undoubtedly the intention of the wording.
