 Poetry Through My Eyes and My World

A Deal Gone Bad

I saw what you did
It wasn't very nice
When you saw me
You looked at me twice
I saw the gun go to my head
Right then & there
I knew I was dead
As you pulled the trigger
You said
You Dumb Black N*****
As the body fell to the ground
It had to be me that was found
I was just a kid
With a great life ahead
Nothing to be accomplished
Because I am
I thought we were tight
But it was all just in sight
This happens everyday
A person has to pay
Somebody's child is put to rest
I guess that's for the best
I hope that you're not very glad
It was just a deal gone bad
