There It Was

July 12, 2018

There it was

In blue and black and white

 

On some half monster

Half small penis truck

 

A blue lives matters flag

Artfully replicated on the

Cab rear window with

Stars in the LH corner

The stripes formed by

The pledge of allegiance

 

* * * * * * * * * * * “I pledge allegiance

* * * * * * * * * * * to the Flag of the

* * * * * * * * * * *  United States of

* * * * * * * * * * * America, and to the

* * * * * * * * * * * Republic for which it

stands. One Nation Under God,

indivisible with  liberty and justice for all.”

 

As I wrote, artfully done. But that is about it, since like the flag and its pledge, it is all symbolism over substance.

Me, I’m for all lives matter. What gets forgotten in the Blue (which seems to be a strange temporary euphemism for “white”) lives matter movement, is that there are black-blues, brown-blues, yellow-blues, etc.

The irony, or lack thereof of using the pledge within the image, is that at the end, even before it was ever altered, through all versions, states.

“With liberty and justice for all.”

Doesn’t always happen. My guess is that Steve Caucasian would have had more liberty, if caught with a cell phone in his grandma’s back yard than Stephon Clark did.

And probably a longer process before determining if a crime was committed. Regardless, would not have been served justice by six shots in the back.

“Stephon Clark was shot and killed on the evening of March 18, 2018, by two officers of the Sacramento Police Department in Sacramento, California, United States.

The officers were looking for a suspect who was breaking windows in the Meadowview neighborhood, and confronted Clark, an unarmed 22-year-old African-American man whom they found in the yard of his grandmother’s house, where he resided.”

Not exactly liberty or justice.  Hmmm.

 

As for the pledge, curious if people would be so eager to recite it, if they knew it was written by a “socialist”. Oh the humanity! !
