Black Lives Matter- Gail Swaine

Get back to your own country I hear them shout

Something my grandparents would warn us about

Everything was fine before….

Before…..Before? Before what? I explore

It’s not like America here the system’s not the same

Duggan, Jarrett, Rigg, Patterson and more it’s a shame.

Why did they have to remove that statue?

A constant reminder of pain our ancestors endured… they have no clue

Black lives matter we shout

White lives matter and if you don’t like it get out!!!

I feel anger I feel frustration I feel pain

My skin colour upsets people it’s completely insane

We strive on towards a world that we long to be

Where Black, white, brown can live together equally.
