For your benefit


For your benefit.


Another rat inside a cage,
An experiment gone wrong;
So set me free, or kill your slave,
Or please just let me go.


I have my rage locked in a cage,
It’s ready to explode.
My teeth are razors and my claws are sharp;
My blood is running cold.


It’s scary here, they smell your fear,
They like to cause you pain.
It’s all so dark, I cry, I hurt,
Things will always be this way.


Entrapped by them, to do as they wish,
My needs are ignored, I am unable to think,
Or do anything you take for granted,
Here they come again, time for another scraping.


Another patch where they took my skin,
Just chopped it off, did they think about me?
When they cut us up and then wait for us to die,
Give us exercise in a maze, then pour acid in our eyes.


Oh that smells nice, it’s a new perfume,
I’m choking, I’m blind, what the Hell are you doing?
Experimenting? I’m just a little mouse,
They chopped off my tail, to make me less immense.


I’m too fat for them, so they starve me in my cage,
There are hundreds of us here, we know we won’t be saved.
Were just to be used, to help the human race,
So goodbye to life and happiness, come burn me once again.
