No Screams

Allowed. Silence enforced
by a rough choke stick
like a bit between your teeth
forcing your tongue flat
keeping your mouth open
empty and dry
unable to speak
to bite, to voice your pain.
After a while
you will be docile,
obedient or mad
and useless.
How you struggle
or accept defeat
is up to you.
No one cares.
You are all the same to us-
throw-away lives.
