Poetry – Policing

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!
