Treasure Island

Lynne FincherSpringarden

The Message

They sold our rights away that day
For the simple sum of none

They lied and said we had to stay
There hidden from the sun

They led us off in cattle cars
And shed our blood in vain

They never even heard our cries
Nor washed away our stains

We scratched our epitaphs
Within the prison walls

Before they piled our bodies up
In sullied wooden stalls

The unleashed hatred feasted on
Insanity and rage

But another persons spirit
Can't be kept inside a cage

The greatest message left behind
Lies silent in the snow

Please tell the world this message
And let the people know

The hatred of our tormentors
The world was soon to see

Midst all the savage carnage
Of this earthly killing spree

Our Souls were never captured
And our Spirits wandered free
