Born Into Captivity - Poem by Anthony Charles King

exploited with knowledge
crushed by ignorance
what can you say to the world?

you can search among these mocking words
they will divide you... a shameful prayer

you have become..
'the machinery of life'
keeping count your mercies
suffering carefully

...on this mountain of terror
we stand
in silver rags

our blessed children
..begging for tears

our dreams were sold
to the truist friend..
..his tiger teeth gleaming
from end to end..
