Justifying murder #Ferguson

Laid to rest by a dishonest hand,

that day we lost another man

from life and struggles that we face

his name they try to deface; erase

but i know that our fight wont end

together we stand hand in hand

or rather, hands up as a stance

to end this brutality by policemen

Now tell me that this ain't unfair

the fact his body just laid there

now tell me its okay for darren

to justify the life he snared

So how can we have brotherhood

how can we have peace today

if jurys decide its justified

to take our peoples lives away
