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.
