Rated: E · Poetry · Political · #2072143
A tribute to the people of Flint Michigan, for the atrocities that have befallen them.
The City, cloaked in darkness,
As many of her people affected.
The stench, creating madness,
The sick, from her old pipes leaded.

Her many precious children and elderly
Who are dying from her water.
The One who is ultimately responsible
Should face charges of murder.

Sadly as the glorious City,
Inches closer to Lent.
The One who is ultimately responsible
Belongs to the one percent.

He is cloaked and vehemently protected,
By his many wealthy friends.
Who say that he is ‘just suspected’,
And that the story should end.
