Need For Transparency In Smollett Case

What is so troubling about the Smollett hoax
Is the fire of racial divide it stokes
A hoax of two hooded black “klansmen” putting a rope around his neck
Summons up the dark images of true racism into race relations inject
Thank God Smollett seems to be a bit mentally impaired
Paying for the two hoaxers with a check almost guarantees he would by the police be snared
Instead of thanking his lucky stars that Michelle’s former chief of staff tried to intervene
And a hack of a state attorney decided to remove him from the prosecuted scene
And then sealing his lips and fading from the spotlight far away
He came up with the dumbest thing a guilty, lying person could ever say
Had his lawyers demand an apology from the police who are in a livid fit
Prompting a demand by Chicago to reimburse the city the $130k spent licked-split
Kim Foxx must unseal this mess to discover why the office refused to prosecute what many believe was a slam dunk case
To the fears of a dual system of justice one for us and the other for the celebrities and connected try to erase
