They come together as one to speak out against a wrong,

What do they show the world around them, they teach nothing.

A man is dead, who is it they blame, believe with anger the law,

They do no better as their protest is of evil, used as an excuse.

A gathering of criminals looting and terrorizing to show their dislike,

Attacking and beating those of different color out of hate and anger.

Possibly it could be their frustration with their own lives comes to life,

Destroying their own town, fires burning, does this make them proud.?

Jobs and economy being ruined, in their own town they raise their fists in triumph,

Are they fools, they are of ignorance, blaming society for more than one incident.

This is no gathering of good people, they are of no help as they create the bad,

No good will come of this, only a town scarred and destroyed, never forgotten.

  1. I am always disappointed with people when they loot, fight, hurt others, or kill others when they are upset. Especially if it’s a loss of a game taken too seriously, or some silly thing. Rioting is mini war, and citizens hurt fellow citizens, rather than banding together for solution. The mind of man has deteriorated to this point. Not all ….. but many. When governments say you cannot enforce house rules, then no one learns proper behavior. I do not support child abuse, but to let them rule the roost, they grow thinking the world owes them, and they fall into the childish behaviors they’ve been taught when things don’t go as they wish. Unfortunate indeed.
