The Diary Of The Coloured

Another innocent black soul taken,

Hunted and slaughtered like a pig for bacon.

Many still skeptical of: “why black lives matter?”

As if racial profiling isn't more frequent for those blacker.

Because they’re vulnerable

Because they’re ‘not like us’


Souls lost to the flames

That crawled over short cuts

Or worse – over incompetence
