Death By Police On The Neck

A New View


Four policemen

fired for failure

to embrace

the new reality.

A response,

but the numbers

on the civil suit

for wrongful death

will not diminish.


Policeman punching

black woman while

husband protests.

Ordered to leave,

husband is tasered.


Somebody did not

get the message. 

Witnesses are harder

to intimidate

when millions view

the videos of a black

woman beaten.


Dog walking

in Central Park

will have more

leash enforcement

and restitution

for a videoed

false report.


The only justice

in the incidents 

this past week

were phone

videos and refusals

by citizens

to see wrong

and walk away.

Somebody got 

the message. 








Author's Notes/Comments: 

The protests are getting violent. The code word is "Enough".

The process will an ugly but

The process will an ugly but necessary one.

We'll just keep writing 'til there's nothing left to write.

We'll just keep waiting 'til they read all our works left to right.

I Keep Hoping

The message is heard but generations have to die before healing can be discussed. Unnecessary grief. ~S~
