 "FOR TROY"


HAIKU:
Justice was not served
Only bloodlust and vengeance
Death of innocence.

POEM:
Shots heard
after a scuffle
beer drinking transient
distressed and disturbed
a badge intervenes
now six feet under
now you walk the green mile
for no other reason
except you're in the wrong place
at the wrong time.

False witness
false testimonies
sealed your fate
but not your faith
all now recanted
and revised
they were all lies.

Now pigs hide
behind the truth
no physical evidence
to DNA proof
Doesn't matter
that nigger must die.

Legal lynching
lying flat on a gurney
last appeal from attorneys
all used up.

Yet the faith is strong
GOD witness writing on walls
Supreme court has no balls
transitioning into love
high above reasoning
embellished in your family.

Activism growing
true justice is flowing
in the veins
to minimize the pain
of wrong.

You're physically gone
but spirit still represents
transcending ignorance
of America's legal system.

So warriors left behind
are on a mission to
cleanse death from innocence
to let freedom stand tall
and the world heeds the cal
to fill the void
AS THEY REMINISCE OVER YOU
BROTHA TROY!!!
