Is It Poetry

America, You Had Better Be Afraid


No knock raids.
Three thousand in nineteen eighty.
Eighty thousand last year.
First they kill your dogs
bypassing the fourth amendment.
Militarized police departments.
Black hawk helicopters
for a department of fifty cops.
Every federal department
has a swat team.
The master servant relationship
is reversed.
Tanks used in Afghanistan
used against Americans.
To say you deserve it
means you think I deserve it.
If You love America
you had better be afraid.
They will kill you and treat it as a game.
You are the new enemy.
You are the new threat.
You are what they train to kill.
You and your children.
Grandma and grandpa are deadly threats.
