peace riot

I’m starting a peace riot with rebels against violence
Our purpose is breaking boundaries not bones
Fists thrown are seen less often than unicorns
We each fight to obtain justice
Until the police brutally handcuff us
We’re charged with “disturbing the peace”
Police are street referees who blow guns
Lethal miniature missiles whistle past our muted eardrums
Each bullet represents the fear we run from
Their mosquito sting clings inside flesh
(This is a righteous death)
