When Love and Justice meet

image

PART ONE

The

killing thing America

is that it happens everyday,

this meet and greet

promoting self

and

hate.
You with your maniacal
and twisted dream
Deny,
deny,
denied,
has long been your battle cry

Like

a

closed society

where

cash is king

and

lying

a repetitive act of normalcy

But I digress

Breaking news, this just in….

CNN is ablaze

and Don Lemon

we are amazed,
that you do what you got to do,
albeit a tan in a can
to quench a nation
long transfixed
by color
and race.

Speaking of Talib Kweli,

Oh Don please,

its best you let the brother be

else he might take pen to pad

if you make him mad

and he gonna have to e, e, ether-ize you, up in this piece.

PART 2

The police got that

strong arm twist,

but that just got the people pissed

and they ain’t trying to hear that shit anymore.

There is no justice in America today, not now,

not tomorrow,

not yesterday.

With all this show of force

with weapons

and

scopes

What did you prove?

What did it show?

You told on yourselves and now people see,

you ain’t right,

and

never
will

be.

PART 3

True justice,

she neither

be

burdened

nor blind

but it appears

some you white folk
may
have
gouged
out
her eyes

And even though

you

be

you,

and

I be me,
and
then,
we,

being us,

being she,
being he,

we being

all cast

from that

all mortals tree;

then why is it we refuse

to embrace

the reciprocal nature

that love,

in common with justice would bring?

If only we. . . .
Despite your introspective sighs
the people continue to cry / sing.

What justice?
What peace?

This will never be.
Not as long as the powers that be, continue

to dominate

his brother to his injury.

So then
why then is it so hard
for people
to conceptualize
to recognize
the real issue at hand;
and the
universal ramifications
for us not
respecting
history
nor accurately
discerning
where we are
in
the
stream
of
time?
End.
