born to be an assassin
there’s been talk of re-education camps
for children of certain parents
thinking maybe just maybe
the countryside might be saved
for what’s happening inside the city
will take decades to decipher
and those trapped inside
will forever be beholden to the sun
some ways out are costlier than others
such as escapee versus recruit
the former barreling past borders
the latter anything but in a hurry
