Like Last Year

Its been a month now.
C’mon, most of us have forgotten
the night sounds of Ferguson.
Hell, we’ve got fantasy football
and that enterovirus to
worry with now plus
HallowThanksgivinChristmas
is almost here, kids.
Yessir, all of that and so much
American more eracing
the blacker shades of brown.
But really, whatcha gonna do?
Whatcha gonna do?
Yeah, the time’ll change soon too.
Darker earlier, colder,
like last year.

    Reblogged this on definitelynotapoet and commented:
    Don’t forget the struggle that still continues, not just in Ferguson but for all people of color, everywhere.

    I’ve stopped praying for peace, instead – justice.
