It's been a while,
A pause indeed, since last we spoke my friend;
How goes the trial,
Laws disagreed, hence fastly broken then.
I know such things,
Quickly stirred, and mixed up sediment;
The people roared, and pushed back in lament.
Though the big whigs,
Fat--content--made their choices known;
Racks or stones, could reveal such bruises shown.
The people cried out,
Fraught with rage: no more racial sin;
And fire bout,
And rattled cage: the riots did begin.
He said she said,
Fingers stretched, and looked for victims sweet;
Burn the bed,
The whole house catched, and cooked the poor babe's feet.
Justice sought, the people turned to crime;
Fuss for not, no lesson learned with time.
How dare you
Shout out in his name, and call your actions just;
How dare you
Tout your shameful ways, for media to lust.
You think your actions
Bring him peace? His family any comfort?
Seek equality with violence
In the streets?! What fairness brings this sport?
How 'bout next time,
Before you decide, to selfishly loot and plunder...
...you take the time,
Explore these "lies," and seek lessons lying under?
Such quick default,
To mob mentality, your ignorance raced to match;
Your morals halt,
In ethical frailty, and sense replaced by the cookie-cutter batch.
Though I, myself, have quickly grown to be;
At least I try,
Peacefully to delve, and learn from Missouri.
Our country may be, with racial issues new;
It fits the bill,
Quite obviously, as our citizens recently proved:
Really?! Oh really?!
We haven't moved forward, since race riots of the past?
How childish, how silly,
You've clearly ignored,
The equality acheived at last.
And no, of course not,
We're certainly not perfect, for bigots still surely exist;
But do you not realize,
How little you've helped, to spread love and remedy this.
Embrace peace now,
Brother, resign your anger and hatred and cynical ways;
Let's bring this country
Together again, let equality ring out the day.
Think we're acting pretty childish as a country right now.
