Acts of Civil Unrest *

by Hussein

Where people drink beer and on chicken wings they dine
Texas Bilkers in Waco killed nine

They call our youth terrorist and called Trayvon a thug
But, the White Biker suspects were spoken to kindly and given everything but a hug

The police treated them with respect
and not one died with a cop's knee on their neck

This story for the press does not have the same appeal
as  Black folks looting-which they show with a zeal

 In the news between us and them I see a disparity
I wish I could say this was a rarity

In my people, the US Government and Corporations refuse to fully invest.
and justify running a police state and prison nation because of acts of civil unrest
