Congrats!

The Unspoken Words of George Floyd.


Congrats, Humans!    


You have achieved

Yet, another evolutionary milestone:


A live broadcast, 

of an actual human kill! 


Man on man,

no gun, no sword, no drone


Just a knee, 

and a pair of good ol 'cuffs


Streamed live 

for the world to see! 


Daylight murder, 

of an unarmed, grown-ass, black man, 

His name, George Floyd.


Hands shacked behind his back,

Face pressed down on the dirty street,

Begging for his dear life.

Crying for his mama


I can't breathe!

I can’t breathe!

I can't be!


Nine, 

Fucking, 

Minutes! 


I can't breathe!

Your hand on the waist!

Your eye on the camera

Your knee on his neck.


I can't breathe.


Hollywood!

who's taking notes?

Who's gon' twist this tale

'to yet another legend


Our men in blue...

Our man in suit, 


400 hundred years!

of pain and trauma 

bequeathed to the next generation 


Who now have to live 

with an ugly mark in their hearts  


How evil man can be! 

How cruel! 

How heartless! 


And yet, 

How clueless!  

Clueless about our right

Our right that cannot be granted 

by a fellow human being 


Our right to Be.

Our right to Live.


To be and to be seen!

To speak and to be heard!  

Our right to love and to be loved!


We seek justice! 

We call for justice!

We demand justice!

 

In the streets and in the courtroom

In the classroom and in the boardroom

In the village and in the city

In the slums and in the suburbs

 

And rest assured,

That we will not forget! 


We will not forget

What you did

to one of our own


His name, George Floyd!

His name, Eric Garner!

His name, Jacob Blake!


Jina lake, Yassin Moyo.

Jina lake Chris Msando.


Riitwa riake, ni Martin Kimani

Riitwa riake, ni J.M wa Kariuki! 


For no man

deserves to die

in the hands of another.
