Another police shooting. And so another inquiry has begun. And the silence is already deafening.

The Same Old All Too Familiar Refrain.

Those served to protect us have done it again,
Another poor innocent schmuck has been slain,
He had hold of a metal bar, the cops saw it plain,
He treated their orders to halt with quiet disdain.

Those served to protect us have done it again.

The weapon in his hand he foolishly chose to retain;
Now came the moment of truth for which cops train,
One discharged his Taser, for there’s laws to maintain,
One discharged his gun, yet neither engaged their brain.

Those served to protect us have done it again.

Who is guilty, who is innocent, the Police will ascertain!
Luckily Sanchez’ loss of hearing might well prove their gain,
In life Sanchez had been silent, dead, silent he will long remain;
Its two fine officers word against his, and he sure can’t complain.

Those served to protect us have done it again.
