Easter Message

by dovemarie

On the feast of our resurrected King
Fell the anniversary of Martin Luther King

In a time of racial insurrection
We celebrate the Resurrection

In these days of white supremacy
Minorities beg for clemency

Today the scales of justice tipped
In favor of black men who once were whipped

Blacks and whites in vicious hate burning
Today I see the tide turning

Who could predict
A just verdict?

Punishment inflicted
Guilt of many depicted

A man who used excessive force...
Today history plots a new course

African or Hebrew
Negro or Jew
With changing history
We must learn to live in commonality

Thoughts about how Easter fell on April 4, the 53rd anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King's assassination. and the justice that was rendered in the Chauvin trial, proving that black lives do matter. The jury was made up of blacks, whites, and racially mixed, so several cultures had a hand in making the decision. Thanks to Arek Socha from Pixabay
