They march on City Hall,
Trailing a long banner,
A fragile memorial,
Dedicated to mostly young minorities,
The fatal victims of police brutality,
Of New York’s Finest.
As they march they chant:
“Police brutality by the hour!”
“What do we do?”
“Fight the power!”
The fragile banner trails behind the marchers.
One hundred and eighty-seven stolen lives.
From the sidewalk in riot gear
Some of New York’s Finest watch.
