Red, White, Blue But You Forgot Black

America, America! We cry!
The so-called home of brave and land of free
When we see our brothers and sisters die
Like fruit---strange---picked too soon from the rich tree
Our right to bear, Our right to bear! They yell!
Fighting while we---for what: from fear---are slain
Hushed are the sounds from the liberty bell
Ringing are our voices protesting pain
Warrant by their right, tried to shut us down
We did not foresee our freedom’s high price
Breathe---not, punished for surrender: Mike Brown
Life, contingent on color---Tamir Rice
However we shall overcome this rage and hate,
For acceptance, We can no longer wait.
