Hash Tag Rag

So sorry about little Brown;
So sorry about little Martin;
So sorry about the Truth,
Which has been all but forgotten.
Wheel of Justice turns slow slow slow;
It takes time time time before anyone will ever know,
But first this commercial break.
Life doesn’t come in a 30 minute take.
Now back to the Technicolor broadcast wake,
Brought to you by Intel
Or whatever’ll sell.
Of course the cops/protestors/journalists lie.
Of course the blacks/whites/Republicans/Democrats lie.
Of course you can get the t-shirt!
“Hands up, don’t shoot.” damn why?
Hash tag patience;
Hash tag wait;
Hash tag Truth;
It’s ALWAYS last thru the gate.

About Kitt

Sometimes a rhyme or couplet wanders across my consciousness. So, I share it. Other times I'm a hospice social worker; others, a Dad; others, southerner, New Orleanian, cajun enthusiast, voter, and on better days, a not-too-awful-poet/rhymster. Welcome to my page. Enjoy.
