Baltimore

Baltimore 1

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.

Baltimore 2

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,

Misplaced actions,

You let him die in vain.

As a loyal Red Sox fan for over 25 years, I pay my respects to a worthy opponent, a fearless leader, and one of the true greats in sports.

Thanks for the memories and congratulations, Captain!
