Justice For Trayvon

Should not have been as elusive as it has become

How can lady justice rest easy in the realization

That a young boy with the apparent promise

To live too, and likewise stand his ground to

Defend his precious life and the right to walk

Boldly to his father’s abode in the land of the free,

Such freedom, previously denied by shackles and ships,

Was gunned down before the prime of his short life…

With no remedy forthcoming for his cold body.

Yet, his choice of garment becomes a negative focal point,

And though racial connotations seem tragically minimized

They loom large in the quest for justice for more than the dead

For alas, justice for Trayvon is indeed justice for all.

Lest we all someday are subject to dreadfully wrong assumptions

Causing the fabric of society to disintegrate to the detriment of all.

Shoot us not merely because of the skin …
