The cops go berserk
in Compton, California,
as a police chase

ends up in a neighborhood.
Over a hundred rounds
of automatic weapons fire

is sprayed
into a Suburban
carrying a lone black male.

They reloaded their weapons
and started firing again
as though Compton

was their private firing range
which, of course, it is.
Though the black man was

he’s still a danger
to all cops,

even the Papalote cops
fired their water pistols
in solidarity.
