Murder is Murder

Let us not become so desensitized

by the daily deluge of hate, violence and lies

that we allow a murder to be minimized

 

This was not an ‘incident’ or an ‘unfortunate situation’

George Floyd was Murdered

There is no question

Murder is Murder whether the killer is in uniform or not

 

Over what? A “suspected” $20 forgery?

George is one of many, too many

that have died of police brutality

and those officers who stood by and let it happen are guilty,

as well, and must be held accountable because silence is complicity

 

There are no justifications

and so fear, anger and pain fuel demonstrations

 

Regardless of race, religion or political affiliation

may our voices join together in condemnation

and as one people, “We The People” as a nation

demand the guilty parties immediate incarceration

 

Please– Let us not become so desensitized

by the daily deluge of hate, violence and lies

that we allow a murder to be minimized
