Citizen ID card

925

I was told to get an identity
Wrapped in a plastic sheet
With my name and County
I was smiling when looking at the cameras
And washed the lights beam and flash
I had an ID card
A proud citizen of my Country
I remember the moment
Then the year came
It was 1990
My identity was a poison
I was hunted like chickens
By gangs hungry for my blood
I ran in swamps and slept with frogs
My ID card was a nightmare
I was chased like flies pursuing a corpse
Why?
Why did I smile at that camera that took my face?
I was putting my face on death roll for a mobster
Citizen ID card…
I will never smile at you again
