GROOVY WISH by jjméndez


Isn’t it appalling to know
that it took sixteen bullet holes
to halt a distraught teenager
rather than suppress his wager?

It’s a pitiful sight to find
ammunition derailing lives
and bury the truth in paper lies 
more often than a hug-in-kind

Will we ever lift the veil and find
that hiding a loose gun behind
a badge inflicting misery
is no different than a felony?

It would be so groovy if we
no longer had the need to flee
from the fear of being beat
by a rogue cop’s bullet speed…
