talk is cheap

Talk is cheap

It costs a bullet &

A one way ICU trip

–          George Keroa.

(RIP)

 

Talk is cheap

It costs a news clip

And maybe a broken rib

–          Denis Onsarigo.

(Get well quick)

 

 

They shot him in the head

For the feat

Of thinking on his feet

Asking around for justice

The truth; his un-rest was peace.

 

On the steps the court supreme

Cried all night,’ what’s tear gas to me’

 

‘One down!’ they scream,

Glee …

40 million are still.

 

‘Man down!’ they sing

40 million if need be.

 

Blood in your eyes, I see

Blood on your hands, how sweet

 

Stay out the streets!

A mother weeps. Come

Hide under my sheets.

 

Stay out the streets!

Please, meet

on Facebook & tweet,

 

…. ‘#Talkischeap’
