  • Battling Extinction

    Dodge bullets on your way from school.
    Chalk lines where the blood
    did pool.
    Wrong colour will end your life.
    Never before
    has Crayola exacted such a price!
    Make-shift crosses to bear the hurt.
    Corner vendor selling
    a R.I.P. shirt.
    The tally
    is indeed
    endless,
    by sunrise
    you could be friendless.
    Homes
    got more plywood
    than windows.
    Liquor stores
    so you can
    drown your sorrows.
    Or
    blast off
    with a liquid shot,
    basement apothecaries
    will make your vein hot.
    But each batch
    just might
    make the vessel burn,
    take a trip
    and you may never return.
    Politician
    dog-whistles,
    genetics is to blame,
    when he
    commissions the league,
    and you
    black-balled from the game!
    You see, the deck's stacked
    and the dice are loaded,
    it makes no difference
    just how you voted!
    And they say you're simply
    criminal minded,
    but ivory towers
    have left them all blinded.
    Inherent privilege
    does not inherent virtue
    make.
    That kind of logic
    is half-baked.
    Still,
    they see no distinction.
    While you're busy fighting traffic,
    we're out here
    battling extinction!

        Editing a comment
        Circled back to rectify that. However, I'm sure I still missed a few, I often do.
