In response to the challenge of NaPoWriMo a piece inspired by an article by Rosa Monckton.

Robert  Saylor

A murdered man in Baltimore,
He sinned by having genes
That put him at odds with the Law.
Just wanted to watch a film again
So would not leave the Regal,
And set in train
A terrible chain
Of events that were barely legal.
Mistreated by the police,
Asphyxiated. His demise
Should honestly shame us all.
A man with Down’s is human too,
As are the artistic and palsied who
Want to enjoy life, just like you!
