Televised news turns
a half-used day into
a waste of desolation.

The black children mourn because the white children have by force of arms stolen their peas by corrupting the black father and mother to give up their heritage. Now the black children are crying less and less because the black farther has faught a war to claim that heritage but the western main stream media think they can use the pictures into perpetuity. Nothing remains the same.
