how does the poet james kirkup prove that there are no foriegn countries

The poet James Kirkup proves that there are no foreign countries by saying that war amongst countries is pointless because men form varied nations are not different from each other. They might have same uniforms but have the same human body. These men breathe the same air, they walk on the same earth as us inside which after death everyone lies.

Men are same because they eat the same food, they are aware of the sun, water and air. Have similar hands with similar lines which describe the labours and struggles every man has gone through. These men have the same eyes which are awake and asleep at the same time. And instead of war problems can be resolved through love. Love is a common language that all men coming form different nations understand well.

Therefore, the poet says all men are same and so are all countries, non is foreign.
