Wearing a hoodie is not capital punishment
Shopping for Skittles is not capital punishment
Defending yourself is not capital punishment
Being young and black is not capital punishment
Standing your Ground is not capital punishment
Lethal weapons end this conversation.Trayvon Martin never got
his chance to speak.Silenced like Afghan women and children.Innocent but dead.

War comes home.Invade a country or a person.Just a question of scale
Returned vets explode @random.PTSD /uncaring
Welcome troops home.In body bags or broken
Their casualties uncounted.Politicians drone on.

Man with a gun.You hear it again."we never knew..a family man"
Bodies cannot speak .Casualty toll creeps.Steep.
16 Americans killed by Afghani troops.Allies??
Something about burning Korans.Lack of respect.Killing civilians
What we accuse Taliban of-fundamentalism.We do.Withdraw now
War machines kill both operators and innocent.No more corpses.
