#Zimmerman

 .
 .
When will we hear the President
Say if he had a son,
Who chose to act in self-defense,
He’d look like Zimmerman?
 .
When will the modern media
Stop baiting based on race,
And trying to convict a man
Before he pleads his case?
 .
When will the Sharptons of the world
With sound and fury say,
That race and ethnic heritage
May not have been at play?
.

When will the prosecuting class
Misconduct set aside,
And see to it that charges laid
To evidence be tied?
 .
Perhaps we cannot have that now,
But, be that as it may,
Thank God we get to celebrate
With Zimmerman today.
.

My goal is to produce poetical cartoons. I try to use metaphors and caricatures (or a politician’s own words) to address complex political and social situations. In this way, I sum up current events in humorous verse.
