People who wear suits every day by Cassie Kinney


People who wear suits every day
want to be cowboys of vigilantism--
Enraptured by the idea of themselves --
The idea of being defenders of supremacy.
Good old boys disguised as police
Once as bullies of their school to the hoods
And they militarize those schools and streets,
Except for wall street...
These damn police don't stop rape and murder,
And certainly don't stop corruption.
All they know how to do is shove the bullet,
Stop a person driving black,
Punish those who are fighting back.
There has always been a police state
Living in the present policed
Replicating the racist policies & projects. 
Who structured the projects and gave them crack?
 Who continues to acquit police after killing?
Who structured the levees and let them break?
Who sat back and let those people drown?
Who continues to put a fine and fee on lives?
Who benefits from their suffering?
