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


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
