Silent Sirens - Poem by JAY EMM

so deep and piercing
cries, echoes of groans reverberate
deeper into our clogged ears
we hear what we don' t hear
so we've been made deaf

so crystal clear the sights are
blood spluttered, splashed and spilled
like chickens we are slaughtered
like lambs we die in silence
laments kill us even more

so much to say
words reek in our mouths
our lips shake with volumes of banned statements
we dare not utter a word

don't see
don't hear
don't talk

the three basic human rights
granted us by the system
in exchange
for our fragile lives
