For No Reason

 

We are being punished again

Celtic pagan human sacifices, 

For no reason. 

 

To make us belive we're mental. 

Through being locked up tormented, 

By the stalker kerb crawler police

And their NHS mental health staff 

Our health is none of their concern

When we didn't hurt anybody

Nor ourselves as they're supposed

To lock people up for, for the rules

Don't apply to them hurting us. 

 

For we did nothing wrong, we being

Targets of Nazis who won the war,

My father fought them too, 

With us not being white, we targets

Of police state racial profiling. 

 

Otherwise why so many, over 20

Attacks in the 20 years since teens,

By police but no convictions,

Only to pass on to the hospital

For no reason.

With the police raping our bodies 

And lives, and the papers today

Telling of how they go for trivial

Matters and don't solve crimes

And they've been discredited, 

With their unlawful killings, 

 

Even the day after those same ones 

Came after me, we are easy prey. 

 

And I don't believe in rascism

For we are not a colour and it hurts

Even to submit to it in my mind. 

But that is all the police and medics they work with see, 

Attack us due to their lack of it

For money thefts and pay

For no reason

 

Wreck our lives marriage, steal what they can, just because they can

For no reason

and we complain or  take them to court,

For a reason.

A really angry poem that sparks to life. You provide severe examples of some of the messes we are in today.
