Blue

throughout darkish instances of bother

i develop into a poet

solely there do i 

attain the depth of emotions

love dying loss

so it’s with that girl

that girl with whom i really like

but wrestle

woman justice

she is aware of i used to be dyed (died?)

blue

boy on a mission

shiny badge with deadly penalties

then cometh God (oh, sure essential to insert right here)

this entity which represents

goodness

integrity 

rightness 

lovingkindness 

justice with mercy

and sure fact oh fact

(there i mentioned it) 

values strengthen our skinny blue line

those that stand with the capability to assist should

be or develop into good

very excellent

these referred to as with giant hearts

enamored in love with

my girl and her sister equity

but belief and hope so shortly damaged

shattered

by these misplaced with small

fear-filled hearts

with knees on necks

i’m drained

mentioned what i needed to say

my getting older self saddened grieving

for what nonetheless may very well be a shining blueness

reworked 

distributing justice with mercy

do you who stand in line hear me?

(you now bear this burden this duty!)

do you not know this was as soon as completed? may as soon as once more be resurrected?

do you not hear me?
