Food4Thought: Hands-Up Don’t Shoot ! | Poem By Hazel Chihuri [@baeyy__]

STOP right there.

Your car is insured.
Your licence is valid.
There was nothing wrong with your driving.
BUT sir i couldn’t help notice your black.

I understand its a crime you had no choice but to commit.
I understand you have no control over it.
I understand its a crime you committed from birth.
And a crime you committed everyday since.

Now sir please understand for every crime committed there is a consequence.
Please understand that what i’m about to do has to be done.
Please understand i must shoot you.

I know you have no weapon,
BUT sir i couldn’t help notice your black.
You probably have a family,
BUT sir i couldn’t help notice your black.
I see your hands are up as a sign of surrender.
BUT sir i couldn’t help notice your black.
I know you did nothing wrong,
BUT sir (gunshot)


So what do you think? What are your thoughts?
