A Slave’s Prayer

by Captain Walker

Categories: Humanities

“I wish to remain a pawn – a mere cog – a mechanism in a massive machinery, shaped and predestined by my ‘owners’, who allow me a small amount of freedom and pleasure to cherish, who serve me chemicals designed to numb my pain…so I can work harder and die younger.

I worship my masters and all that has mastery over me.

I like my unseen cage.

I am powerless. It is hopeless. I cannot escape.

I accept and obey.”

by Captain Walker (Sept 2012).
