No Condolences Accepted From The Murderer

Your condolences are not welcome

Your condolences are not accepted

When you lynched, humiliated

Suffocated, and killed a person

A human being; then the outcome

Ought to be a life sentence in jail

And eventually the rest in hell

Kneeling on the neck of Brother Floyd

Was a deadly and cruel weapon

Brother Floyd represents the world

The perpetrator deserves a life sentence

And more. This is just; this is common sense

We all feel the pain

Of this repugnant sin

We’re all hurt by this criminal behavior

And we’re looking for a fairer and better future.

 

P.S. My heartfelt condolences to the Floyd family and

To our Brothers and Sisters throughout the World.
