Fumes

25 Feb
an unarmed woman is shot in the neck
point-blank without even a warning 
while
SWAT is in the house, not shooting anyone

They culled her to make an example

yet the powers that be turn blind eyes

another woman is bludgeoned to death
by police, while those in the crowd cry out
for mercy-- 
the so-called insurrection
instigated on purpose, 

and capitol punishment
meted out unjustly by the same
who now won't lift a finger to resist
a tank rolling over a car full of civilians

& thousands being massacred in the streets
of the sovereign country
of our ally--

where is the outrage?
