Left alive


There was never a conspiracy,

I tell the only guy

who speaks

my native tongue

After that they tried

to drown me,

I told them everything

I didn’t know.

I’m scared and young


Why was my testimony

swept aside?

I cannot understand

why I’m left alive

It’s been 5 years now..

They tell me

I might see a lawyer

Well if I can only tell

what really happened

I will pass with flying colours

This lame excuse

for a democracy

Is tolerated ‘till the government falls

The pursuit of justice

can never be served

by a chaingang

of orange overalls

An Afghan farmer boy

Caught at the wrong time,

in the wrong place

Stuck in a Cuban nightmare -

disguised as an army base
