Public Brutality

A police woman gets her face smashed,

Into a concrete curb

By a drug intoxicated man

She is terrified to shoot

Police brutality has made her the victim

She risks her life to not be criticized 

She had every right to protect herself

But she let herself be beaten

And hospitalized 

To spare the public

Of another life lost

To a police officer's personal life protection

This poem is about: 
Our world
