Suffocating Citizens

Listening
Holding my hands up
Raising my fists up
Listening

Hoping falters at every loss
Crying gets tired with the rising cost

Friends dying
People lying
How many voices do they have to hear
Before they know legitimate fear

Spray with mace,
Prove the case
Bruise with bags,
Remove the gags
Shoot to kill,
Swallow no pill
Remove breath,
Risk death

You get a choice
You still have a voice

My friends can’t breathe
It’s not enough to seethe
