We can’t seem to make it straight,    
this didn’t come out the wazoo.
As those born to a silver plate give us the twenty-two.
   
Injustice will not perpetuate,    
we hope this to be true.  
Equality is to hydrate a societal breakthrough.  
   
We stay at home and delegate,    
what the hurt should then do.  
Yet we fail to appreciate the hurting’s point of view.  
   
Born to a hateful state,    
their laws are déjà vu.  
Skin and wallet to motivate how the blue interview.  
   
Maybe if you were to nominate,  
a life within their shoes.  
You’ll find your speech a duplicate of “Justice is overdue”.

Author's Note
Just my small thoughts about the issues in Amarica. For those foreign to the UK, twenty-two is wagging your index and middle finger at someone, it's a way of saying 'piss off'
