WARRANT NO PROTECTION
OTHERS BE STRESSING MY IMPERFECTIONS,
WITH PENS, GUNS & BATONS
AIMED IN MY DIRECTION.
THEY SCREAM OBJECTIONS TO MY INTERJECTION,
BUT THEY'RE ON A HATE ERECTION.
IT AIN’T NO QUESTION THAT THEIR TRANSGRESSIONS,
AIDS IN THE OPPRESSION OF THOSE IN MY SECTION.
EXCESSIVE AGGRESSION WITH THE UNSPOKEN SUGGESTION,
DEMANDING CONCESSION OF MY PEOPLE’S PROGRESSION.
STRAPPED WITH WEAPONS AND CROSSING INTERSECTIONS,
WHAT’S NEXT THEN?
FACE TO ASPHALT COMPRESSION, ANOTHER STREET LESSON.
MANIFESTED BY THEIR OBSESSION
THAT MY COMPLEXION,
DOES NOT WARRANT PROTECTION.
(To the memory of Emmett Till, Oscar Grant, Sean Bell, Trayvon Martin, Jordan Davis and so many more, who were made defendants at their murderers trial.)
