I Am a Slave to the System

I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.

Slave To The System

Slave To The System

I am a slave to the system, I am a slave.

I am a slave to the system, I am a slave

Because they work me till I am broken

Without giving me a token.

I am a slave to the system, I am a slave

Beatings on my back have left a crying mark

I was free until they plunged me into this place so mean and dark

Now all my hopes and dreams are gone

All I do now is slave from dusk till dawn

I am a slave to the system, I am a slave

Tell Martin and Nelson it was in vain

Because the system hates us and inflicts pain

I am a slave to the system, I am a slave

I am a slave to the system, I am a slave

Because they work me till I am broken

Without giving me a token
