POEM: "The Big Cat Show"

The Big Cat Show 

The big cat show, see wronged cops
travel to the capital to kill themselves
you breathe one sigh and say for what
they’re arrested after drinking poison

All their lives, their guts hammered
see held against their will in hospital
see survival punished, don’t do it again
(an awful press gets away with murder)

See happy man has no past and maybe
see unhappy man has got nothing else
and you are a solid citizen of the world
and nothing you see can ever freeze you

See in Amerika the black man is feared
Lord see the lawful moment is absent
look he is killed by a police who swore
to be righteous before this world ends.
