They gathered together in peaceful protest

in sombre memory of an innocent victim

thousands from many countries and cities

marched in unison with banners displayed

from many cultures they walked together

the young and old it was a joint endeavour!


Side by side they all walked with a purpose

to express just what each of them felt

unable to stop those causing the violence

taking the meaning away from their aims

discriminated against made their stand

for equal rights was their main demand!


They wanted big changes to law and order

police brutality they said had gone too far

and demanded justice for the fallen man

enraged an ever growing throng of people

statues to those involved in the slave trade

one in particular targeted in a daylight raid!


A belief that it was now time for justice grew

momentum and determination exploded

for them there was no turning back again

that strong stance they had to maintain!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      What is the future for our society now?
