Justice

The sun rises over a smouldering scene
Rooftops gone, glass cracked, and embers gleam
from the burnt out shack that used to be your job
No recourse for your suffering, no comprehension of the world
Rage out and push it out fears as big as the lies you're told
Police marching, and the people standing against them
"Fight the power man, stick it to the system"
A single spark was all that was needed
before a peaceful protest got more than heated.
riot ready to go, step outside and emotions at high
feed into the frenzy, of a media reporting cries
of help and not calls for peace,
of burning buildings and no homes asleep
Of children gassed and reporters rubbered
self defense is seen as offence for the troubled
No mistake that there are people here
despite the look in their eyes, the fear
Anger and vitrol, no cause for the harm
against your fellow countrymen, there is no calm
forget your humanity and indulge in the affair
but when you wake up, your community to repair
