Dammit I’m stuck in here.

i don’t belong
for one i’m alive
well, more alive then them
my atoms move around and stuff
well, more than theirs
why do i have to be the one
stuck in here with the
empty human babyheads?
i don’t know how they do it
but silently they whine
about everything
my heads too big
i have no body
i’m broken

if they spent as much time
worrying about the hot-blooded monster
outside the cage
they might get somewhere

i’m just grateful
i’m labeled as essential
not a plaything
