I Dont Care

 

I dont care

what he did before they came

I dont care

what they say they saw him do

I dont care

what stories backdrop the story

I dont care

 

that was before

and I just dont care

it doesnt matter

 

but after

 

once they had him

in handcuffs

on the ground

under their knee

pleading for his life

that put an end to before

they had no reason

no reason at all

to let him die

carelessly

once they had him

 

that he died

that those sworn

to serve and protect

did not do either for him

even as he begged for his life

is the most despicable of evils

 


 

Someday I will no longer write poems like this
