21st Century Slaves

Hidden, they are not seen
Muted, they are not heard
Chained, they are enslaved
Fearful, they are motionless
With nothing but total obedience
To live on
They live in bondage
With masters with no compassion
For their pain and heartaches
They are caged in cages
Much smaller than animal cages
Beaten, overworked
They get no rest from the torments
Of heartless men and women
Who care more for their wallets
And their pets who do nothing
But frolic in their midst
Treated as multi-purpose machines
They are not just thrown away
When they refuse to work
They are beaten, rape, starved
