Somebody Is Killing Our Children - Poem by Hebert Logerie
Somebody is indiscriminately
Shooting our children, our babies
There are too many dead bodies
Lying in the streets, in the alleys
Somebody is killing our elderly
Without a cause
Without a pause.
Somebody is massively
Killing our brothers and sisters
Somebody is targeting our elders
Disturbing our peace
And destroying our lives and future
Somebody is hurting Mother Nature.
Somebody is trying killing us
Somebody is using deadly force
Somebody is hurting us
Straight to our guts,
Somebody hates us.
There are too many criminals in the streets
And too many innocents wrongly incarcerated
We are burying our babies too young, from the cribs
We are living in a world full of hate and hatred
Somebody is arbitrarily killing our children
It’s prematurely too early for them to head to heaven.
