Never too far gone

One tall hanging tree

Televised crucifixion

Haunting dreaded notion

Echoes of pure hatred and discrimination

Racism

Endless needless senseless violence

A miscarriage of justice

Long-winded pep talks

Last call for peace

One big silent protest

Sea of unheard voices

These elephants and monkeys in the room with me

Unbelievable reasons and explanations behind every thought and action

Forever's chokehold

Feeling less important each day
