What Are The Facts?

Why do they have meetings,
With it stated there is a need...
For a presence of more police,
To patrol with them seen on urban streets?

'It is the people who have become,
Unruly, undisciplined and disrespectful...
To the facts they turn their backs on.'

What are the facts?

'It is the people who have become,
Unruly, undisciplined and disrespectful...
To the facts,
That,
They are the ones creating...
What has been done.
And with a turning of their backs.'

But why do they attack the police,
When they come to make attempts...
To return them and their communities,
Back to a restored peace?

'Well...
You didn't hear this from me.
Stand here and observe it.
And don't leave your mind left behind,
When you see...
The ones creating the havoc,
Are also the ones deluded with disbelief...
That they would rather keep,
Their fantasized lives protected...
Than face reality.'

That's unbelievable.

'I told you to observe.
And not leave your mind behind.
Like the ones shouting...
NO JUSTICE! NO PEACE.'

This...
This is insane.

'As insane as today's reality can get.
And don't forget...
These people expect,
They are entitled to rights...
To protect with a protesting,
Of their kept madness.'
