Silent Sufferers

Awards for gallantry

Praise for the majesty

Pageantry for the academy

 

What about the rest of humanity?

The tears for their agony?

Malady and Tragedy

 

Glory for the few

on the backs of the many

What about our statue?

No penny for the plenty

 

No equality in our antiquity

Despite our ubiquity

Missing pages

For the people in cages

 

Our anatomy just your casualty

In the name of strategy

The great alchemy

Our Blood for your Gold

Our Lives Sold

 

In the hands of tyrants

Suffering in silence

They want our compliance

We offer defiance

No more your highness
