If It waits all day
hearing the clanks
It is to await approval
only It's guards can give.

It has threw It's hands up!
The stench of It's captors'
ignorance sucks out all hope
of rehabilitation.

Outside the door,
waiting for opportunity
the ghetto-drones await in plot
as each guard runs outside.

It drips blood among the tiles
this inmate/prisoner in such gloom.
What that be? What that is?
Ignorance on every side!

In and out of uniform: What that
be? It claims to be human!
What that is thay C: Inmate!
The dehumans, here to stay.
