RIP GEORGE FLOYD

Handcuffed

Face down

Knees on his neck

They did nothing

He called the officer “sir”

They did nothing

He begged for his life

He begged for water

He begged for mercy

They did nothing

His nose bled.

His body trembled.

He lost control of his bladder.

They did nothing.

He cried out “I can’t breath.”

They did nothing. Twelve more times.

“I can’t breath.”

“I can’t breath.”

“I can’t breath.”

“I can’t breath.”

“I can’t breath.”

“I can’t breath.”

“I can’t breath.”

“I can’t breath.”

“I can’t breath.”

“I can’t breath.”

“I can’t breath.”

“I can’t breath.”

They did nothing .

One last, time he gasped, “I can’t breath.”

They did nothing.

A fire fighter demanded they checked his Pulse.

They did nothing .

Off duty medical personnel begged them to stop.

They did nothing.

Deprived of oxygen.

His organs screaming.

His brain frantic.

They did nothing.

They watched George Floyd die.

His life fading.

A slow death.

They did nothing.

A lynching on the ground.

They did nothing.

For eight minutes agonizing minutes.

Four officers watched.

He cried for his Mom who gave him life..

A grown man…Crying for his mum who gave him life….

As he feared joining her in death and still they did nothing.

A black man.

A gentle giant.

Murdered because he was black.

And still they have done nothing.

REST IN PEACE GEORGE

May justice be served Black lives matters
