headlines: duke it out or die trying

Dear Readers,

Another hip hop based commentary on the days New York Times headlines by political poet Roopa Singh, aka NAXAL.

April 12, 2007

duke marshalled in the law/
called in resources headed up by ma and pa/
lawyers and judges and politicians oh my/
boys ran a train through her soul/
underneath layers of lies/
question: is it why not or why?/

attorney general cooper’s decision/
to drop all charges/
is at once not a surprise and staggering/
the right to surivive continues/
let me bring you/
more news/
tommorow

Peace,
NAXAL
