The poem is below.


Robert e Lee was a treasonous ole soul
To defeat the republic his goal

Slavery was abolished the people were free
But only two third a southern decree

The republic with stood the brutal onslaught
Capturing the rebels stopping the plot

50yrs after the civil war
They put up a monument to lee's slavery once more

In two thousand and seventeen
They thought it was time the south came clean

Remove ole Lee off his high horse
But the white supremest and KKK had no remorse

They march on Charlottesville with torches a blaze
Singing Nazi slogans eyes filled with craze 

Their hate of black and Jews they proclaimed
Three dead and trump said no one to blame

All people just want to live free
But hate filled hearts and ignorant animosity 

Another day in racist America rose in Charlottesville
White Sheets and a rope looking for brother to kill

yes, i saw that on the news too; sad, sad, sad; well written, gave me images of the violence that transpired. such is human life - wasted on bigotry and racism - i feel disappointed and hope the wounds can heal. God bless!
