Poetry Corner: Talk About It
I remember the day they shot Tray thinking just another poor Black kid dead Black-on-Black crime not this time.
I remember hearing breaking news the day Mike Brown got shot down with his hands up screaming don’t shoot it was unnecessary we know the truth.
Freddie Gray with his life he had to pay in police hands the last time we would see that man.
Men women and children today I walked to the park oh how nice it would of been to see Tamir Rice.
Sandra Bland found hanged in her cell another murdered Black added to this chronicled crooked police tale.
For soliciting just write a ticket and leave but no so Eric Garner’s last words I can’t breathe.
