Impunity

Injustice lives on

Made evident by our courts

Poverty and racism feed its hunger

Until blood is spilled to satisfy

Nothing changes, civil rights are a myth

Insinuated to please the skeptics

Then in one fell swoop

Yet another innocent dies with no justice served

    • I understand Xena. I can’t believe that it still happens in this day and age, but we see it every day. I guess the real question is, when will things change in this country? The pessimist in me says never, but I still have hope that someday, probably long after I’m gone we will realize that people are people having the same hopes and dreams regardless of skin color or religion. Stay hopeful my friend.
