    What About Us?

    Dancing in the stars of the 
    Fake smiling frivolous crowds, snapping 
    Their dead-toned cameras at your 
    Dead-toned face. Showing their 
    Support in you, making a name out 
    Of your life that they once judged. 
    This is their control. This is how 
    They make sure that what we should 
    Know is never known. 
    As you lay there, dormant 6 feet under, 
    People praising your name in honor, 
    There are those million un-heard of 
    Names, their lives being taken in vain
    By the B-52 bomber raids. 
    Let your name & your life be honored, 
    But how about those that are never 
    Known? Where are their thousand standing
    Celebrities singing & praying for them? 
    Where is their condolence letter from 
    Mr. Obama? What about them? 
    What about us?

    Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.
