Stop the press

It’s a time of sleepless days

And angry nights.

Human rights stripped away,

Endless privilege on the other side.

The news so dark –

It keeps us up all night.

We watch the country burn

The flames, too bright.

The educated among us,

Seemingly well thinking minds

Have forgotten basic humanity

They stew in a mirage of lies.

Every morning, I wake up

Afraid to know the latest hate crime.

Someone, somewhere

Constantly crossing the line.

The shootings won’t stop

A river of blood flows

How this chapter of history ends

Only time will eventually show.
