Slavery - Poem by Colin Ian Jeffery

Taken in war or kidnapped
Shackled in irons and sold
They are humans in despair.

Sold as property to be servile
Classed sub-human
Living out a life of misery.

Treated as cowering dogs
They are worked from dawn to dust
Without mercy or respite.

In captivity they think of freedom
Spirit never wavering
Hoping for humanity to set them free.
