Crying in the colour blue

among the dead
where
someone flicked
the switch

lithium slaves
no dreams
of freedom

little
black boys
playing
in the muddy
Congo dirt

our hands washed
clean

nothing
to see here

or hear

batteries
cheaper
than children

crazy cunts
like me

it's my phone
&
I'll text
if I want to
