‘Unable to breathe’
He was under the knock of his knee flat on the ground beneath
Derick Chauvin chocked his air way poor George couldn’t breathe
He wasn’t even standing he wasn’t trying to run
He wasn’t armed with knife neither did he have gun
What was the logic to hold to suffocate him beneath?
While pleading you in panic unable to move or breathe
Badly restrained Black man videoed in a broad day light
Witnessing he didn’t resist we can see he didn’tfight
Derek Chauvin knelt with force on a poor Black man’s neck
With no due care for his victim to give him a second break
he begged him twelve times saying I can’t breathe
the evil Police man sadly caused George Floyd’s heart to freeze
Why Derek Chauvin please tell us why?
to show your hate for a Black mandid George Floyd have to die?
We saw your depraved cruelty what you caused and the calamity
black is never innocent for you ‘trying to prove he is guilty’
who approved your power to kill who gave you that authority?
he was begging you for mercy he was gasping for air
You Devil Dereck Chauvin George Floyd was in despair
your colleagues were watching you even more shocking and most unfair
by hurting a black man who couldn’t fight unable to move
What did you gain what did you prove?
We don’t want this America we are raging with anger
Until everyone believes Black lives also matter!
We are sorry George Floyd we failed you we are annoyed
Countless Black lives have gone too many families destroyed
like many before youwho were killed by the Police
you became an embodiment of US racism and all the other injustice
we promise to challenge inequality we pray you Rest in Peace.
It has caused us so much pain we cannot be just at ease
A Luta Continua!
