God Save The Queen - Poem by A . T . Perkins

The Queen sits on the bank of the Ohio river.
There for mankind.
She is hurting, she has been
treated like a whore, under the
pretext of justice.
Men under the banner of lawmakers,
and peace officers.
Nazis and Racists.
Men united under the guise of
a wronged people.
Dope peddlers and Thugs.
They went at each other for a week
in April.
We live here, we know what really happened.
It didn't matter if they were stealin a T.V.,
or shootin rubber bullets, both of
them were in their element.
The only innocent one pulled
from his truck, beat for fun.
Now, the activists are here to milk it, (go save yourself)
'Smile for the camera, ' it's a three ring circus.
Their tearing her majesty apart.
They say she's a powder keg, they just don't
tell you, they all have got
a hand on the plunger.
