    THE BALTIMORE SIX: On the Balance scales

    By Andre Austin

    1. Caesar R. Goodson, A pale horse rider of death of Freddie Gray

    He had a bumpy ride in the paddy wagon is the least to say

    And As his life got slimmer and Slimmer

    No medical assistance was given By 2# Garrett E. Miller


    We want a piece of the action but we get no slice

    You can’t even play Monopoly without no dice

    Some of the Baltimore finest ain’t nothing Nice

    Not with the conspiracy of Lt. #3 of Brian W. Rice


    We demand our piece of the pie

    We are rightful owners of a share of the Tree of Life (Rev 22:19)

    But you can’t eat your fruit pie in a coffin when you die

    After 400 years of slavery we still live in strife


    Just like the infamous Emperor Nero

    Who cut many lives to a flat line of Zero

    But our state Prosecutor Mosby is our hero

    I see you but I wouldn’t want to be Officer #4 Edward M. Nero


    Freddie gray wasn’t a Saint but was a child of Light

    However, he was a mother’s son

    Now his life is extinguished and just done

    His life was snuffed out by Officer # 5 Alicia D. White


    We are created by God our savior and Guide

    The lord shapes us on a wheel of a Potter

    From the prosecuting Attorney we take our pride

    Gray’s life was spun in reverse by Officer # 6 William G. Porter


    So you better not jay walk, run or loiter with your black feet

    Or Else you’ll be put under at about 6 feet,

    With embalming fluid in your body they will mix

    They thought they had their criminal enterprise in the fix

    The Soap Opera of the future trial continues with The Baltimore Six
