Detainee! - Poem by Eric Cockrell

detainee...
uncharged,
no rights to speedy trial....

subversive? radical?
or just daring to defy?
citizen? cant happen?

mowed down by the machine...
they do it in China all the time!
freedom of speech....

as long as you say the right words!
bill of rights?
as long as you can

afford their freedom!
corporate army....
armed thugs!

    The state do any thing they want, they just pass
    a bill to make it law. Great poem.
