Rubbish on the Beach

Form: German Sonnet

Debris streams of shattered glass reflects dawn
The morning after another street fight
A kid dead as a bottle said good night
But only his family will dare mourn
As his life becomes a forgotten pawn
As social media screams it is right
‘Shouldn’t have been there’ it was out of sight
None disagree or they too will be torn
Just bleating sheep follow the loudest voice
Then call it free speech and personal choice
While liberty frays away like old rope
Their hearts cold until it’s one of their own
Their child’s life that is so easily thrown
The discarded children born without hope
