right to Kill a Nightingale

the right to kill protected by the law

opioids in his system

black not white

poor not rich

the right to kill

living in the wrong neihborhood

concrete and liquor stores not parks or aluminum siding

the right to kill

a no good thug not a fine upstanding off spring

a heart problem not treated by a Cadillac healthcare package and a corner office

the right to kill

left wing sympathy not a poster child to red balls in the air

rabble on the street not rabbits in the backyard near the swingset

the right to kill

the right to kill

the right to kill

until it happens upon a foot in front of your phone camera not tv screen

chucking pebbles as the Birds fly northbound.
