Social Justice

What a clamour What a noise To bring social justice To answer the cries That's gone on for centuries That they keep maintaining With promises and lies Black lives matter So we shout But who hears the cries When the establishment do nought After the cotton fields Up comes the continuity In the justice system When we are gunned down by agents Who prey on our community The leaders are aware But do they really care When they fail to dismantle A system , which is so unfair Slavery maybe abolished But injustices lingers on In its many disguises And the many layers We face, all day long Martin Luther made a stand Bob Marley, sung redemption songs Freedom fighters raise their rifles And in the graveyard Gather the mourning throngs There is no hope for change When you maintain a system That heaps suffering on the wounded And depravity prolongs For in the utterings There is a promise of change But when it comes to implementation Not A Stroke No progress made.

Great verse my friend. We definitely need justice to be delivered UNTO ALL--without bias and bought out verdicts. A fav... God bless.

Abolishing the Electoral College and wiping all of the senators and representatives out of office to be replaced with people younger than 70 years old would be a hell of a start Nice one.
