NaPoWriMo 2012: Day 10

Throughout the month of April, in honor of National Poetry Writing Month, I am writing an average of one poem a day. Most of them will be based on prompts I have found on various sites.

I've been busy the past two days, and I've been doing some pre-writing for two poems. The first one is based on quotes from the press conference by Trayvon Martin's parents, after charges were announced for his shooter. It's a bit polemical, but it's in a grand tradition of political poems, which tend to be more abstract. But of course, it's only a rough draft.
