I Do Not Care


This poem was written about and incident where a white cop shot a 10 year old black boy, he was found innocent even though everyone knew he did it. In class we had to write from any point of view and I chose the point of view of the cop.


And with this gun inside my hand,
A crime not done, I do not care,
Those eyes so mocking, deep and dark,
This colors bad, I have been taught.

Not age, nor height I don’t take in,
As I scream those words, a fateful sin,
Die you little mother f***er, and a tear falls down,
With fear in his eyes I can’t be bound.

Now trial day, I take the stand,
Not fear, nor regret that can be shown,
With a white jury there, with one lone black,
I know I’ll win, and not held back.

I know what I’ve done,
I do not care,
that’s one more gone,
So don’t you fear.

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
