Trapped by Michael Peck

Trapped inside
their own bodies and minds,
by a failed society
whose time is lost.
Standing in between
two fences
unwanted, feared, abandoned,
by their own country
and their world.
Archaic images struggle
with present separateness-
the laughter is gone
drowned in their children’s tears.
Living in cages of cardboard
and despair –
shadows of a forgotten time
a forgotten century
a living symbol,
of what the overpopulated future
offers to those
they find no use for-
