its not over…

killing innocent teenagers is an unspoken doctrine within our government

it is what fuels this economy

blood spends

ground steams with its  hot spill

an innocence snatched and forgotten

families learning new without

watching the walls in their houses

because the news highlights every detail

of their tragedy

the powers that be watch the news

they hear the people roaring for answers

they ignore

they have always turned a blind eye

this is protocol

senseless murders are ate with the morning coffee

crime scenes and bloody carcasses

they highlight we view

and we complain

and we sit

we do not have answers

we are programmed and our fuses are disconnecting

it is as sweet as American Pie

who really has ever tasted American Pie

are its apples bittersweet on the tongue stinging

equal to the tangy truths we are expected to meld into

to say I am proud to be

is not as easy as it used ta

does not hold the same weight it did in the arms of the freedom riders

the college kids who wanted to see justice cause they were sent visions

of the future

our present

this mayhem that is our land of liberty

they don’t want more college kids that will change this system

they want this system to blow out

so they send trained killers to be everyday folk to kill our youth

our bright and very illumined minds

they hate that we can acquire knowledge

they try to keep it

the government is multiracial

so these killings aren’t a black or white thing

others races just have better sense of finance and loyalty than those two

they were not around on this land when it was just black and white

people of other nations don’t know how to play cut-throat spades…

there is no ending

this is not over.
