Poem by @ItsNighthawkBTW

By Joshua Chalmers

 

This is a rework of a poem I wrote, in reaction to a 13 year old boy being shot by an officer in LA, for playing with a toy gun.

He was left paralysed.

It happened a while ago but I only heard about it recently.

 

 

It doesn’t have a name.

But he does.

 

 

Carbine

Rewind 

Be kind 

Leave negativity behind 

 

Raindrops 

Pain stops

Can’t levitate 

While we hear shots 

 

Just more brutality

From cops
