Machine



I did not know even
When I became slave
To an impostor devil
Who robes and desolate my heart
Built the tomb of machine
Drank my blood
Weaved my cells to embroider
The high tech lane of modern man
Crushing every grain of bones and sweats
Of my world but I was nowhere
Alas! Buried in the dark abyss of demon
Along with an absurd dream of crown
To become a saddest part of history
