Police Violence

Police Violence

( for Alfie)

he waits…
head smashed by police
brain brutally damaged
they do
what they can
now, the time
of waiting..

violence
on London streets
is about
chains being
broken..
spectre

of past
ripping down
of state walls
haunts the bastard
progeny of
the mother of

parliaments,
no, no, no
education is
not a privilege
financial cuts
will only slash

those already
bleeding –
elastic band
stretched too
far snaps- fingers
get hurt..

we serve
him
watching,
waiting
what is the light
hidden by clouds?
