In Ferguson, Missouri

Alexis Ogunmokun –

In Ferguson, Missouri

I went to Ferguson, Missouri

To see the protest for justice

For the unarmed 18-year-old

After he was shot multiple times

Till his blood spilled on the ground

In the hardass cop’s presence

He remained unidentified

To avoid the death threats

That begun

Parents of the unarmed hooded one

Offered their condolences to the parents

Who lost their son who was bound for

College after graduating high school

I laughed hard

When Trina slit the throat of a different

Cop in the Ferguson police precinct

So that she can make to calls to Trin

And Enamela

She laughed hard when Hell

Broke loose and the looting ended

When this event will never die.
