Tears and Rage (Mike Brown Murder)

Grey filled the evening sky from day
break beaten minds
of the cloud makers

who’s tears and black rage blazed
and boiled by the actions
of the Originator Life Takers

steadily claiming young black
lives wasted them
between the lines of black top streets

making claim to shame
slowly covering their forgotten crowns
in used white sheets

no justice, held
accountable no peace, to hold together
tampered with clues

what are they to do
hands up
because nobody moves

evidence left behind
from eighteen year
later abortions

tears and rage kept concealed
behind the yellow tape
of caution
