you blank

you shout
they push you against the wall
shuts that mouth
they questions
you answer
they put you to jail
shuts that mouth
and listens no further
you question
they tie you on a post
nails each palms
with concrete nails
you struggle
they enclose your body
with metal case-like shields
secludes from all encounters
from any organisms
you surrender
they take away everything
deprives water and mere oxygen.
you show strength
even amidst the slowly increasing temperature
gently burning the flesh
you cry
for help, but they remove your tongue
with tweezers or some dull cutters
