Lab monkey

Picking fruit and swimming in the trees

Spending time with family

Until the day of depravity 

 

Homeland destroyed and community slaughtered 

Snatched and sent overseas 

To life science facilities 

 Never to feel the sunlight upon my face

Left in consent pain 

completely terrified 

 

Isolated

Tortured daily

Tied down, injected, force to inhale toxins

Burning chemicals poured onto my blistering skin 

 

Just so you can wear make up upon your face  

What did I do to deserve this?

 

Everyday I reach out 

Sticking my hand out 

From the cold bare mental cage

In my silent plea for some humanity
