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
