Black Lives Matter!


No matter the colour of your skin,
The religion you believe in,
Your gender sex or who you love,
No-one has the right to attack your life.
***
PeskyPoetry may be based in the UK,
And the PeskyPoet may be a white male,
But he lives in an attacked minority being Gay,
He stands with you every step of the way.
***
Don’t let some orange buffoon take your freedom,
Fight for what is right and what you believe in,
Stand as one against this injustice,
Stand together in this hour.
***
Black lives matter,
Not just as a gimmick,
Not just for an election,
Not just for the few,
Black Lives are human too.
***
Black lives are part of the human family,
One big tapestry,
You wouldn’t hurt your own family,
Would you?
***
Sorry for my ramblings,
The news today has been saddening,
Anger boiled through my veins,
And I had to write my feelings.
***
PeskyPoetry will go dark tonight,
No poems, no posts, this is only right.
Black lives matter!
I stand with you!
