Open the door to the cell

the real dragon emerges

A mind torn

tortured from birth

choked by control of every thought

judge, jury and executioner

dysfunctional and poor

pus covered slime, tumor laden

I was spawned in bilge water

and raised by the whip

degraded, abused

two to a bed

in the prison called family
