It has be-gun: Blacks [ ARE down AND] gun-ned.
Gunned down for fun, they are not having fun.
Rising moons that defied this afternoon or suns-
Monks at night and during the days of nuns,
We walked off-stage and away like John G. Dunne.
It has begun; marginalized and Black, they are gunned
Down. For reasons unknown, we deliberately hid the suns,
Drowning stars that were meant to shine- We are not done.
