Operation Cross Country vs. Stand Your Ground (Revised)

Dozens of entertainers are boycotting Florida re: Stand Your Ground,
While dozens of pimps force teenage girls to prostitute all over town,
“Operation Cross Country” saves 105 victims, a well organized sting,
The FBI brings down those who dehumanize to flash, “Bling-Bling.”

Stevie Wonder, Jay-Z, Kanye West, MaryMary, are calling it a crime,
Because they and many others feel George Zimmerman should do time,
Protests, marches, rallies objecting Travyon Martin’s death that’s fine,
Okay what about an innocent girl turning tricks at the tender age of 9?

At least 23 other states have some type of, “Stand Your Ground Law,
”While child sex trafficking in America is nation wide & that’s not all,
The beatings rained down on these victims does not deserve a rally? Plus abused hookers beaten in public not some darkened back ally?

Trayvon Martin is one yet thousands of teens & children worldwide,
Perform dispicable acts under threat of violence, many of them die,
In the U.S. alone some 2,700 victims have been rescued since 2003,
That’s right America, Home Of The brave, yeah, Land Of The Free.

“The Innocence Lost National Initiative, ” could use those big names,
Bringing to the forefront this atrocity, busting child prostitution rings,
“National Center For Missing & Exploited Children, ” need a Wonder,
Jay-Z, Kanye West, MaryMary, Chris Brown, can add more thunder.

Big names like these could shed some serious light on those who exploit,
Did I mention one of the most profitable areas was the city of Detroit?
Whereas, Sanford, Florida is not the only city that needs to be set free,
“I Got 99 Problems But A _______ Ain’t One, ” yet we patronize Jay-Z?

This Jay-Z guy has sold tens of millions of records with crap like that,
Can someone who blatantly disrespects woman be aware of the fact,
It’s the attitude of pimps who promote & john’s who pay for illicit sex,
And doing it solely for $$$$$ & pleasure without any regard or regret.

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
