Why Us?

When it is between white and color it's all over the news,

But when its black against black it gets no views!

This is normal just like sinners behind pews.

How is the stench of dead boys on the streets nothing new?

When jails are filled with black men just because they aren't you!


A police car stops him again,

He is thin,

He has been sober for months now, when,

They ask him to step out and assume the position.

As other people drive by and say here we go again!

I drive by and wonder why them?
