Daily African American Processions

Every day minority bodies drops,
One more Eulogy written,
One more casket visit by minority mothers,
Another protected terrorist gets away with murder,

If it wasn’t the end of tyranny,
Multiple gun shots heard,

Church bells ring for children processions,
Everybody worried about another recession,
No one worried about intercession,

Uncle Sam and mass incarceration,
Key to the crypt held by white hoods,
Orange jump suits and nooses,

Crying for peace instead of pleading for promises,
Every utterance another broken treaty,

It is time,
Another procession…
