Statistic


Tears flow for the loss of another
I didn't know him but still a brother
We don't have the same mother & father
Still this loss is a bother
I've never laid eyes on him before & his loved
ones will lay eyes no more
An urban king taken before is time
cast of  as nothing more than a statistic
of black-on-black crime.
