Branded

10/22/15

Herded
Like cattle
Poked
Like bears
Shot
Like elephants
Burned
 
Like animals
 
We mind our own business
Do as we’re told
They come grab us
Sheer us
Tie us together
Bring us to a new place
 
And brand our skin

"561, 562, 563, 564..."
 
"785, 786, 787, 788, 789..."
 
"995, 996, 997, 998, 999, 1,000!"
 
“All are accounted for. CHANGE THEM!”
 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
Whipped
Scolded
Punched
Cut
Bruised
Broken
Torn
Shut
 
Turned into robots
Just to fit in
Removed our humanity
Sanity, collapsed
 
Branded in society
