Hark, haven’t you heard?
This is a cautionary tale shared thru the written word
And while this may be a bitter pill…to swallow
Only time will reveal if the appeal Of the People has fallen upon deaf ears
As many folk believe it has for so many years
The laws are ever changing, rearrangin’…
Can no longer tolerate strange fruit a’hangin’
Legally, Philosophically, Conceptually, Emotionally…or in Real Time
The dissonant and inharmonious cacophony of injustice and contradiction
Must be replaced with the melodic euphony of true ideals with purpose and conviction
For our children… and for the promise of a better life
And not a future world wrought with heartache and strife
Can’t you see?
Respectfully, it is our destiny, responsibility…
OUR obligation to save our nation
Better still, there is a real need for us to take heed and the lead as well
To be that beacon of light…
Socially, globally, for a fair Democracy
And not for the insidious domination of an oligarchy or an aristocracy
The Statue of Liberty stands tall…
So, it would also stand…to reason that it was erected to watch over EVERY man, woman and child… right?
World liberation of an equitable proration without consternation…
It is a continuous fight
But how many more souls must fall
Before we can make sense of it all?
The Scales of Justice are supposed to be blind…
But WE must not turn a blind eye
Yes, it is a fact…
That trying to do what is right is a perpetual balancing act, Jack
Recent happenings are a reckoning that…
As a society, we are bound to repeat the mistakes of our past
Until the WORLD is aghast…
With the blood and the tears already shed
Sometimes it is hard to look ahead
But we have no choice
WE must continue to have a voice…
Until there is truly Equality and Justice for ALL!
