Strangled With A Promise

You are special

like all the other ones

You will be rewarded 

like no one else has ever been

You will grow

as well as a lilac in the Sahara

You will change the world 

like everyone else chants they will

Keep going. Going. Going. Going

Pay up. Pay up now! Pay up now! Or you

Keep going. Going. Going. Going.

Pay up now! Pay up now! Pay up now!

Please can I go outside?

No.

Please can I do something else?

No.

Please can I live?

No. Just stay alive 

until you want to collapse.
