Floyds

knee on neck

his life is a wreck

a death that will not matter much

 

bullet to the back

you will not get much flack  

his skin is the wrong colour, after all

 

noose hanging high

too few will ever question why

this had anything to do with justice

 

the deaths of far too many Floyds

have left gaping voids

that may never completely heal

 

the wisest man I ever knew

once said to me something so true

that I could not forget even if I tried

 

all people are people

nothing less, nothing more

people are all people

living this in consequence, is what life is largely for

 

around the world, where minorities are denied their rights

majorities have to atone

but we also need to seek new ways forward

that all can call their own
