How is it
How is it that we sit back and watch it all crumble away?
How is it that the dream is turning into a nightmare?
How is it that people still hang nooses from trees?
How is it that black, brown, Asian young kids kill each other in the streets?
How is it when the hot needle enters our vein for the 19th or 20th time we expect that?
How is it that the suites in the house of white pontificate for education and healthcare but in the end care very little about helping except for their wallets.
How will it be when the walls come tumbling down?
What will it sound like?
What will the people say?
Will they take to the streets and cheer?
Or will they cannibalize themselves?
We’re all founders of our past and destroyers of our destiny?
Can we change?
