Michael Brown

Another Black kid got shot yesterday
They still killing us off
Even though they put the ropes down
I can’t even count the new ways
From a highly capitalized prison system
Fueled by our poor economic conditions
Just trying to make a living
Reaping profits
On the government’s product
To a broken justice system
That allows a cold-blooded killer
To ‘Stand his Ground’
And condone
An innocent life shot down
Trayvon, Oscar, Darius
Jordan, Renisha and Michael
Watch us as ancestors
And wait now
Knowing that justice will be done
Whispering encouragement in our ears
As we try and figure out the ‘how’.
