So... Justice Is Served... ?!?
And Has Now Been Confirmed...
By Those Who’ve Convicted...
This Cop Who Inflicted...
A HORRIFIC KILLING...
To George Floyd His VICTIM... !!!

But Ma'Khia Bryant Was ALREADY DYING...
BEFORE Derek Chauvin Had People EXPLODING...
With Cries of ...... FINALLY ...... !!!
A Cop WON’T Go Free...
Because He’s GUILTY of A MURDEROUS Deed... !!!
But JUSTICE To Me Is NOT What I See... !!!
When I See Chauvin Feel The Force of A Knee...
On His Neck In A Street Til' He’s Copping A Plea...
To STOP And DECEASE Because He CANNOT BREATHE...
And Then DIES Like A Piece of An UNWANTED BREED... !!!
Maybe Then You’ll Hear Me Say That Justice Is Served... ?!?
Cos’ Too Many Seem Pleased By These Judicial Scenes...
When George Floyd Is DEAD And Will NOT Breathe Again... !!!
I Mean NO DISRESPECT But Let’s Get This CORRECT... !!!
How QUICK Some FORGET How This Man Met His DEATH... !!!
While Chauvin Has Yet To Receive A Sentence That Equates To His END... !!!
Should He Not Now Receive The... DEATH PENALTY... ?!?
Would That Be JUSTIFIED In The Presidents Eyes... ?!?!?
Or Are His PLATITUDES Just To Keep People COOL...
Who Should Not Now Be Fooled Because... New Camera Tools...
Left NO ROOM To EXCUSE Derek Chauvin’s ABUSE...
of The PRIMARY Rule of What Police SHOULD DO...
When They’re Doing Their Work To Yes... PROTECT AND SERVE...
And NOT Leave People HURT Or In This Case MUCH WORSE...
Being Given A Turn To Be Treated Like DIRT... !!!
And Like Ashes That Burn Be Then Placed In An Urn... !!!
Because He Is Just ONE Who Is Part of This Club...
Who Was Finally Caught Just ABUSING The Law... !!!
So His Actions DESERVE To Have Him Let Some Worms Return Him To The Earth... !!!
Instead of Live Life In A Prison Confined... !!!
Isn’t It JUSTIFIED For Him To Now DIE... !!!
Because of That Line An Eye For An Eye Or A Life For A LIFE... !!!
Due To His HEINOUS Crime That Caused People Worldwide...
To............... NO LONGER DENY ...
That Justice Is RARELY What Black People Get... !!!
In Fact Most Blacks Are BARELY Able To CATCH BREATHS... !!!
But The System Does Work Is What’s Now Being Said...
Well Such Words May Calm Nerves And Appease CERTAIN Herds...
And These SYSTEMIC Heads But To Me AREN’T CORRECT... !!!
People Need To Be WISE And NOT Let Others DIE...
When Policeman Arrive With Guns Cocked By Their Side...
Or Let Them Use Their Knees And Choke Holds To Impede...
Peoples’ Need To Just Breathe.........
So The Judiciary Has For ONCE Now Been Seen...
To Have Yes Passed A Judgment That’s Shown That It's Function...
Isn't Ruled By Corruption When Some Cop Has Punctured...
A Black Life Like Someone Whose Feeding On Luncheon... !!!
But HOW MANY OTHERS Have Been Made To SUFFER...
By Cops Making Blunders With More Than Their Truncheons... ?!?
..................... TOO MANY To Number ............... !!!
So These Words Are Written To Just Say DON’T Be Thinking...
That THIS Court Decision Means That Black Folks Are Winning...
And Won’t Now Still See Prisons Due To WRONGFUL Convictions...
Given... By A System That’s Lived Off Racism... !!!
When Policemen Be Killing But Then Claim To Be VICTIMS of BIASED Decisions... ?!?
I Get That This Judgement Tastes Good Like A Muffin...
...... But George Floyd’s SIX FEET UNDER ...... !!!
While Chauvin Will LIVE And Still Have Discussions... !!!
So Folks DON’T Confuse This As A TRUE Form of.....
