New Ways To Kill

you breath in, you breath out 
just think about, all the things 
that are all about

and how is it, that i (i) live in a place that has 
not a camera in place 
every time i (I) been in some place 
and not a bob came down in place 
to take a report or a name to my assault   
because they to, are in on the game 
and life for the free will never be the same 
so where do you run, when the powerful 
has played you, and your all but, for done 
and where you go no matter the place 
they put you under and hurt your face 

just a whim of words and your 
dangling your foot off a curb
or breathing in some toxic deal 
that just seems like it couldn't be for real 
but when you drink something with caffeine
you get ill or when you have a chocolate break 
your belly is being madly staked
but the best is still to come 
oh! how yum, so much fun to have screaming pain in your back 
that attach with each vitamin b you care to take      
all because your not protected as a American     

so if i am dumb or very silly 
i could get very ill-y and go
in to the doc's, but i will, only get a killer
and the toxic shots will only kill me 
the mount of  pills they give me
will not give medical relief      
but give me less than liberty 
and no ones the wiser in the USA?

There are, just people like me who don't mush about 
what you get when your free...

    Intresting indeed. You wouldn't believe how much I can relate to your poem. Very defying and intruiging.
