‘Perfect’ by Rob Cantor

Even if you’re slightly ajar

Even if you’re looking bizarre

Even though you failed us so far

You’re perfect in the way that you are

Ferguson Police have dogs and shotguns. The unarmed crowd is raising their hands.

For anyone not following the Mike Brown story on Twitter: a 17 year old black boy named Mike Brown, who was supposed to start college tomorrow, was shot to death in Ferguson, Missouri by police while jaywalking. He was unarmed. He was shot 9 times.

Initial media reports claimed that an 18 year old black man had been shot and killed while fleeing police after shoplifting.

People in the neighborhood, including members of Mike Brown’s family, came out of their homes and began to protest, shouting “no justice, no peace,” and keeping their hands in the air.

Media reports claimed that a violent mob quickly formed around the shooting location shouting “kill the police.”

Spread this. Tell the truth about what happened to this boy. Tell the truth about what is happening NOW. The police and the mainstream media is painting him as a criminal, and his community as a violent mob.

SPREAD THIS. Don’t let them lie.

I am in the middle of a field, in a tent.

While a man dressed as Annubis watches

While I fix a printer so that

A blessing of Nemisis can be given

To a champion of Greece who

Died fighting the forces of Persia while

King Minos watched on.

Later the Champion will arrive at my desk in another tent, after his God granted him one last day of Glory.

And over two hundred other players will never know any of this,

But will have their own stories for this ten minutes

Instead and

As well.
