George Floyd's Death

They killed a man.
They killed a black man.
They Killed a father
Don't you understand?

George Floyd is his name.
Derek Chauvin was to blame.
To him life didn't matter.
It was all A game.

As we realize, despite the lies.
George Floyd's death...
was unavoidable, I surmise.
He warned with his last breath.

Several times saying "I can't breathe".
It wasn't that Chauvin didn't believe.
He didn't care George called his Mama.
On his neck he still pressed His knee.

Let not the enemy deceive;
George Floyd received...
the death penalty,
By a knee.

Let us make sure George Floyd's death
was not in vain.
We must pray to God in Jesus name.
To assure noone experiences the same pain.

We want all peoples to know,
In and out of Court, We want Justice.
Satan and his minions have been busted
in God is where our Trust is!
