FIVE YEARS ON

They tell us Black Lives Matter

As if we didn't know.

Mobs maraud, burn and shatter

And what's there good to show?

Most of us get by without the need for guns and knives

That host of us who seek some valued meaning to our lives.

To these "activists": beware, your cause will lie in tatters

Unless you see we also know that Black Crime Matters.

Fair comment, Steve. There is always the risk with "causes" that they can be well-meant but affected by
other factors that are ignored to their peril.

Perhaps a better name for the movement might be simply 'Lives Matter' . .
