Numbed


Numbed

 

Hearing

          their

               own        

                     words

rehearsed and calculated

 

             playing to the crowds

 

emptiness

              has

                   it’s

                      own

                            sound

 

shallow thud

                                        echoed

 

promises

 

           and

 

matching smiles

                     with

                          all

                            the

                               warmth

plastic

 

and cold

           gravestones

 

 

people

         have long since 

                             become

                   numbers

mere statistics 

 

shake

        those

               hands

 

wave

      those

            flags

 

hold

     those

            babies

 

train             

     condition

                  desensitize

                                 blind

                                       deafen  

                                               divide

                                                     conquer

 

defeat

them

       

          young

                       on
