Rating: 5.0


Think

To the cynic, critic, political gimmick
To those who love to preach hate
To the trapped, wrapped, financially strapped
Just step back and think
Think on these things


Who stands to gain to politicize,
Human Rights, humans, right?
When Human Rights, aren't human
Who is right?
Think on these things


Who stands to gain when we segregate?
Walking around policing hate
When the police we hate, aren't just the police
Why should that police decide, the police fate?
Think on these things


Who stands to gain when humans fight?
Is there a political will, to go around and kill?
Graduating from the spears and daggers
Now we use hate to kill brothers and sisters?
Think, think on these things


Why the escalation in killing and violence?
Can people not be... relied on to use common sense?
But common sense isn't that common
Ask those in the White Hose and House of Commons
Think on these things


Laws must be white and black, not grey some say
Well, the law says you shall not kill
Whether with rock, paper, scissors, missiles or just plain badmind
Badmind? Yes, badmind is ill will, some wish on another still
Think on these things


What is the role of faith?
Well faith often determines people's fate
And some say the church and the politicians are still in bed
And that's why so many are being led to dead
Think on these things


What happen to voices like John Lewis andMartin Luther Jr.?
If you must fight, be a Human Rights Warrior
Fight if you must; there is no need to kill
You can use your ink and voices to fight still
Think on these things


Love one another, we are all blood;
One blood sisters and brothers
Do good to all who cross your path
Doing good adds value to science and art
Think on these things

So to the cynic, critic, political gimmick
Preach love not hate
To the politicians, leaders and police chiefs
Let's politicize the belief that only when humans are treated as humans will we have peace and get relief
Think on these things

Thank you Tony. The killing of George Floyd is part of the inspiration for this poem.
