For my readers that aren’t in the United States, the American city of Baltimore in the state of Maryland is being destroyed by protestors acting in the name of justice for Freddie Grey, a young African-American male who died while in the custody of the Baltimore Police Department after being arrested. I put together this piece while thinking about these events.
You want justice,
But only seek revenge,
Deflection against the innocent,
Looting and plundering,
It’s only just began.
Fighting for Freddie,
You fanned the flames,
Now you can’t extinguish,
What you’ve done,
You let him die in vain.
