Peaceful Protest In Chicago Against Gun Violence

The good people of Chicago have finally had enough
Of the epidemic of shootings that too many lives have snuffed
Too many people of color are shooting too many people of color the same
While the mayor and CPD seem powerless to the killings and woundings tame
Worse the mayor on this issue seems to be MIA
As the tally of shootings and killings increases each day
A peaceful protest in Chicago against the killings that a major expressway blocked
Anger and disappoint over the wave of gun violence that has the nation shocked
Chicago public unions like teachers have in neighborhoods of color abandoned their charges
Trump is right “what do you have to lose” as his support among people of color enlarges
The mayor is guilty of true racism by sheer neglect
Not enough police resources to the victims of color deflect
