Injustice threatens justice

Ain’t it enough i’m American?

No siree, I can see
you are up to no good
your race,
your colour-
you are too much melanin

And I-
I’m too less human.

you do not point at me,
you do not raise your eyes to me.
Beneath me.


Justice has turned back

Truth has fallen in the streets


Injustice threatening Justice

But
Watch, the past, present and future collide,
Watch,
The smoke billows,
Up and down,
Side to side

Untying, uniting
Unrelenting.
Watch,
Watch your back.
