A sonnet a day for February 2014 - day 25 - Weep

There's no solatium he can receive
For loss of his child so cruel and so mean
Sat on the court stand and lied and deceived
Emotions unreal like robot, machine

Fear of our boys is a lie that they told
Never afraid but filled with hate instead
Our boys have audacity to be bold
He pulled out a gun the boys ran and fled

One child was shot, the community cries
They scream justice and hold up signs in red
When questioned the man just sits there and lies
Sees photos of his son's body there dead

Where is the justice in justice we search
Knees bowed, body bent, head low in the church
