Poetry Corner: America’s Ugly Face

This Country’s Pledge of Allegiance to Liberty & Justice for all…

 

No matter how big or tall,

We’re beaten, handcuffed and thrown behind prison walls.

The history of my ancestors,

Leading back to whips & chains,

Stories known to be an unbearable pain.

America’s built on injustice to the Black man.

We learn the rules & know the drill,

Even with our backs turned, hands in the air,

We’re still shot down & killed.

This Country’s claim to freedom, 

It’s a horrific disgrace. 

Justice a bitter after taste,

 So police we look in the face and mustn’t feel safe.

To us justice & equality is known to just be a debate.
