The Blue Line
What a week for the international press
Brexit and its endless drips of small minded politics
The French winning against Germany at last
A vindication of unsolved hatred
To top it up the murder of five police officers In Texas
No doubt there will be a liberal understanding
Black people have been killed by the police
So it is ok then.
Not so, there is no excuse for murder
There is nothing here to understand.
The cities of America are awash with arms
It is the citizens right to bear arms
They fear the government may turn against them
The eagle of war has come home
US troops have killed many civilians in Afghanistan
When people are disrespected
When people are seen as inferior,
The soul is poisoned
And uniformed men are killed in Texas
Is it poetic justice?
