My Poem about Sean Bell


Killing without Reasoning


The Silver Bells stopped ringing on the night of 11.25.2006
The wedding was called off
No longer a groom
No longer living
50 bullets rushed into his helpless body
The bride could only scream
The bride could only ask: Why?
She could only hope for justice

Justice was not served
Appeal after appeal
A verdict was finally reached:
ALL men were acquitted on ALL charges
They were protected by the law
They were guided by their peers
No man dressed in a police uniform was found guilty
Sean Bell’s life was taken without a reason
