Akron police release ‘heartbreaking’ footage of Jayland Walker being shot up to 60 times:

New Item
 

Murder abroad
Murder at home
 
The State without
The State within
 
Slavery then
Knavery now
 
Birthed in blood
Twice-born in sin
 
Free is the slogan
Free is the fact
 
Free is the reason
Free is the rhyme
 
Free of conscience
Free of repine

 
Gathered in gold-dust
are Gadarene swine
 
*
 
Hype and swagger
Cloak and dagger
 
Crusading lies
Lord of the flies
 
Empire unbounded
Creed ill-founded
 
All is confounded
All is decay

 
*
 
Black is the night
Darker the day
 
Night is distended
Day is up-ended
 
When comes the morrow
who left to sorrow
 
All will be mended
All will be ended

 
Come Judgment Day?
