You May Be Good With LAND... ?
But That DOESN’T Mean...
That You’re Good With MAN...
Or INDEED... WOMAN... !!!

Or INDEED Of Course...
With... Your Children... !!!

And That RIGHT THERE...
Can Cause BIG PROBLEMS... !!!

But Let Me Move On...

You Might Be Good With CHICKS...
But NOT The Business of Raising Kids... !!!

You Might Be Good With RACISTS...
UNLESS You’re Someone Who Has DARK Skin... !!!

You May Be Good With Police...
... UNLESS Of Course...
You Get To Feel Their Knees...
Until You CAN'T BREATHE... !!!!!!!!!!

You May Be Good With Poetry...
But NOT Words Like These... !!!

To You... GEORGE FLOYD...
I Say... REST IN PEACE... !!!

Because Words Like THESE...
Are NOT GOOD To Read...
Or Indeed To... HEAR... !!!!!

Well It Seems A Lot of People...
Are Good With... FEAR... !!!

But Let Me Make This CLEAR... !!!
I’m NOT GOOD With YOU...
If That’s How You Move... !!!!!

I’m Pretty Good With THE TRUTH....
According To... A FEW...

So Are You Good With LIES...
That AFFECT Your Life In Ways NOT SO NICE... !!!
Like The Type That Are Designed By Governments Minds...
They’re Pretty Good With Things That Clearly... STING... !!!

So Are You Good With KILLING...
If It HELPS YOU LIVE Like Some SUPREMACIST... ?!!!?
Take A Minute And THINK About... THAT LYRIC... !!!
Because Quite A Few Seem To Be GOOD With THESE...
............ War Ceremonies ........... ?!?

Even When They CELEBRATE...
PURE... KILLING Sprees...!?!

That INDULGE The Ideal That Wars Have Indeed...
Been A Good Thing For...... “ HUMANITY “......

Well That Now Seems To Be INSANITY To Me... !!!!!
Because If Your Good With Seeing... OTHER People BLEED...
Because of Their COLOUR..... RELIGION Or CREED......

Let Me TELL YOU THIS... You AIN’T Good With Me... !!!
So Are You... Good With PEACE And UNITY... ?!?
You Best Be GOOD With THINKING BEFORE You AGREE... !!!
And Be Good With The TRUTH And... REAL HONESTY... !!!
In The Person You BE ... Or ... CLAIM To Be... !!!
And That There Seems To Be A Good Place To... END This Piece...
It’s Actually Much DEEPER... Than It’s Title Seems... !!!

It’s About A LOT Of Things But It’s About How You THINK... !!!
And The Things That You BELIEVE And Whether They Deal In REALITY... ?!?

So I’ll Leave You With A Simple Question Like THIS...
