Clutching A Rosary Beads

They found him dead
Clutching a rosary beads
A child of the State
His final suffering
In a derelict drugs den
Left to fall by the wayside
The State that was responsible for him
Neglected him
Another case file
In another pile
He wasn't even reported missing
Too busy covering up their tracks
Another child of the State
Left to fall between the cracks
