'X –Ray Visions'

Black Bill Blake


Get into the car, they said
We know who you are
We know who your friends are.
Get into the back, jack
We can put you away
In our camp x-ray
Where you’ll never
Never see the light
Of day
Again.
Amen.

Get down on the floor, they said
We want information
We want to know
It was you with
The gun and the
Shiek in the photo.
Eat shit, they said.
They beat me
On the back
And leg
Tied me with wires
Shaved my head
Until I’d have said
Anything
While I craved
Only
To be dead.

Go into oblivion, son.
Just bitterness
And long distress
No use to wonder
Why you’re
In this mess.
Nobody’s son
Oh so disposable
Now.
Your spirit can go
And later on
Your mind
While we spit
On your kind
Your life in
A cage
Will not outrage
A world that
Soon forgets.
Get into the back, they said
We know who you are
We know who your friends are.
