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
