The Prisoner of Silence
The Prisoner Of Silence.
I am a prisoner of your silence,
The victim of state sanctioned violence,
I have no name, I am not here,
I am the Non-Person,
You will not see and will not hear,
I am a ghost in your machine,
I am the silence in the wake of the scream,
I must do as I am told,
I am a slave to be bought and sold,
My flesh is yours to whip and wound,
You will murder me with a moral smile.
I wear my badge that you have made,
I am your scapegoat in the mad parade,
Take down my name and make a list,
Take my life with a single tick,
I am the Non-Person that none shall miss,
Democracy kneels for its neck shot,
Before a fresh dug shallow ditch,
I am an animal in your cage,
I have no rights and may be slain.
