Don't cross the line

Don’t Cross The Line

There is something wrong here, there is no denying
So many of our youth, daily are dying
Stabbed with a blade, with malicious intent
Blead out on the ground, lay under our tent

A blue and white tape, flaps in the breeze
That cordons off a crime scene. There on their knees
The forensic officer has seen it countless times before
Another family destroyed, by a knock on their door

The country lines” uttered, like staccato percussion
This then for certain, is the sad repercussion
Another ‘case’ of déjà vu, unfolds within the cordon
Of the taped off white and blue.


Inspired by recent events. October 2019
