Erased–blood stains and voices
Roadway washed clean by rain
Anger and outrage quelled
Silenced by media’s waning interest
Under the ground in which he’s buried roots still grow
Racism–spreading like crabgrass
Eviscerating the people of justice.
~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~
Wow! You are so right! We must not forget him! Very well written!
But inevitably we always do and that is something that has bothered me over the years. Thank you Carol.
Powerful poem. Thanks for writing this!
Thank you Kate, I appreciate that very much.
How quickly people forget…
Indeed they do, that is the problem, we have such short-term memories.
Yes it is, I bothers me that we forget these type of terrible events as soon as the next news cycle starts.
