2015: Baltimore (a poem)

Going back a few days to use the Writer’s Digest April PAD Challenge prompt for day 23, which was to write a(n) ‘historic’ poem. We happen to be witnessing lots of history at the moment…

They’re making history tonight
under night time skies
and the light from a dozen news cameras

The difference this time
is that we get to see more
than the official story

and it doesn’t look good
