Upon knees we cry and pray and hide

When it hurts too much to keep inside

When shrinking  is our best defense

And begging is our recompense


Submission is our greatest plan

When dying draws so close to hand

Using backs as our final shield

Reliant on the spine we wield


Balling up to blot it out

Muffling the pain we shout

Bowing down to our greatest pain

Still hoping to get up again
