Good Friends

If MLK had lived
just a little
bit longer
Malcolm X
had not been
shot
JFK
had not been
murdered
Medgar Evers
had gotten farther
than his
driveway
Patrice Lumumba
could have made those
4 Belgian
officers disappear
and his brethren
stop roping his arms
tight behind his
back
Thomas Blanton
had been
convicted of murdering
those 4
little
alabama
girls
in 1963
instead of 2001
Ghandi could have lived
long enough
If I could do something
more than sit around
and watch the
same thing
happen
over and over
again
we’d be good friends
