scrambled eggwhites, no yolk

The all-white jury of the trial
That let the murderer of Colton Boushie walk free
Allegedly felt anxious in their decision

As if some other form of justice would creep up
on them, undeserving of violence
And pounce
Prey to the gods of vigilantism

What tools protected them for their
Heroic efforts at serving the state?

What better example of colonial power
Than the resources expended to take care
Of those who see no murder
When a bullet kills a young man
Somehow, miraculously,
Without any human interaction required?

What is more amazing?

They should never have been in court
No bullets should have been fired
He should be alive.
