Baltimore…and everywhere else

Truth is boring.
If the television news
Told us of peaceful thousands
Rather than showing one mother
Bashing her son in a way
We applaud in
Black mothers,
We would turn away,
Watch a sitcom rerun,
Read a book?
Nah.

People are expendable.
Now, break a window,
Burn a car,
Steal a bouquet of flowers,
And you’ve got some crime
We can get behind.

Might makes right.
Loudest voice wins.
Safety in numbers.
And all that crap.
