Riots

Créditos: AFP.

I’ve watched this city burn twice

in my lifetime

and the most notable event

was the reaction of the

politicians in the

aftermath

proclaiming the injustice of

the system

and demanded a new

deal for the hapless and the

poor.

nothing was corrected last

time.

nothing will be changed this

time.

the poor will remain poor.

the unemployed will remain

so.

the homeless will remain

homeless

and the politicians,

fat upon the land, will thrive

forever.
