Verdict

As we wait for the Ferguson verdict:

Guilty
For the act of blood
To kill a boy on summer day
And baking there in scorching sun
The passions boiled over.

Marching
O’er hundred days
And people cry for truth
To change the dialogue at last
Institutions challenged now.

Innocent
May be verdict
Injustice to a whole
And rage, well-earned, into the streets
The death toll just to rise.

Innocent
Will be the next
And the countless ones to come
But when will calls for peace and calm
Fall upon all angry ears?
