[2021] As the list of cold cases to shelve continues growing

 
It's the hottest topic of 2021  
next to Climate Change  
a Capitol Building overthrowing  
Covid vaccination mandates  
and freeing Britney Spears.  

As far as current events ongoing  
it has all the breaking news bulletin  
points adding up into a media  
feeding frenzy phenomenon  
we haven't seen in years.  
 
She was  
 
▪ young --- twenty-two years old, going on twelve  
 
▪ cute --- as a button  
 
▪ White  
 
And there's no dispute  
that her disappearance  
and death is a tragedy . . .  
 
but where was all of this human interest  
when it came to missing Indigenous  
and persons of Color?  
 
 
 
 
Right.
