    Let us remember
    Sandra Bland and the many others
    who have died at the hands of police
    as a black moon rises to a prophetic blood red

    Blood red blushes
    upon the face of the earth
    with no apparent shame in its murderous game

    Accountability ebbs...
    much like the 3rd new moon unseen
    as bullets leave craters of impact upon
    the bodies of waning African American fathers

    Far too many moons have passed
    one too many transgressions
    with few consequences
    with justice still a
    moonshot away ~

    The shot heard around the world are gunshots
    fired upon men and women of color
    by peace officers who willingly
    disturb the peace

    Oh, the gravity of the situation

    There's a black moon rising
