Madonna of Syracuse

She marches along with the rest 
Cradling her belly
Swollen with child
Her chin tilts to the sky and she SHOUTS
Black Lives Matter!
Hands Up!
Don't Shoot!
She's more sad than angry; less angry than sad
She's homeless; the child within is not
She marches to make the World
For the Other
For her Own
For her Child
- ShotByNess.
