Black Poetry : Missouri

Just look around Missouri;
The crimes increased and changed.
Six victims found in the garbage
Unusual and strange.
There’s things that’s passing rapid
Like very innocent lives.
And other things things besides that
Like ones enjoying pride.
An inmate in Missouri,
Who's feeling sorry for himself.
And thinks about his
Good days because he’s someone else.
Weeks later there’s a problem.
Realizes he’s not home.
Because of marijuana
Knowing he done wrong

The goodness of Missouri
The unforgetful stores.
Crown Center that's in Kansas City
Up there we're never bored.
Creative inspirations
That most of us would like.
Remembering Missouri,
Is it the best? Not quite.
Missouri isn’t perfect
And that includes today.
A disrespectful student has prices to be paid.
Some students get by lucky
By calling students names.
And teachers getting fired
'Cause a student got raped

Missouri isn’t heaven
Perfection ran away.
I’m ending this but remember,
To view this world today

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
