Martin Luther King led peaceful protests
He understood that destruction isn’t justice.
Breaking windows, burning cars, throwing rocks
what does that resolve?
Protest racism, protest inequality
but do it peacefully.
Don’t you understand
that filling up with hatred
is a poison that kills you.
Cities are burning
Glass is shattering
Rubber bullets vs makeshift grenades
Minneapolis was burning
and a woman shouted,
“Shoot the white people!”
What the fuck is next?
I thought covid-19 was the worst of it
but now the world’s gone psychotic
insane with months of lockdown
it’s the perfect storm
where madness is the norm.
