Slavery - Poem by Colin Ian Jeffery

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

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

Treated as unruly dogs
Worked from dawn to dust
Breeding more slaves.

In captivity they sing of freedom
Spirit never wavering
Praying humanity will set them free.
