The Summer of Portland


the sickness grows,
arrogance and ignorance,
creeping into brains,
civilization crumbles,
gradual, yet swift,
white liberals shout,
protest and march,
conservatives back the police,
while black children continue to be gunned down,
week after week,
as if invisible,
not as important as preceptions,
unending protests,
no justice, no peace,
but no one free or equal,
the only thing progressing,
the decay and destruction all around the urban streets.
