Try to scream.

Try to shout.

Oh wait, you can’t

We’ve taped your mouth


We’ve stripped you of all your rights

You’re inhuman

You’re worthless

You’re no better than

the ground we walk on.


Shh, it’s alright.

We’ll hold you as you cry.

We’ll pretend it isn’t us;

we aren’t the cruel ones.


Darling, you’ll do just fine.

Take a deep breath.

We’ll make it all better.

We’re taking care of you

Just to tear you down again
