Poetry – Policing



They are employed to protect us –

Not to terrorise!

But some abuse their power –

Fail to empathise.


Full of prejudice and hate

Some dispense brutality.

Based on race and colour

They vent hostility.


They need holding to account!

No-one is above the law!

We need to monitor their actions

So they know the score!


The police should be there for all

Majority and minority.

This society should be a melting pot

Of equality and plurality!
