This is not a recrudescence of racism
In America or in the world, but rather
A continuum of malfeasance, antagonism
And hardcore cruelty of the systemic horror
That Blacks and other minorities have endured
As slaves whose future was obscured or uninsured.
From the nascence of this evil and odious society
Filthy cowboys have killed Indians and Africans selfishly
And inhumanely. Horse mounting agents, patrols or criminals
With police or law and order credentials
Hoisting or twirling whips and menacing deadly weapons
Have acted like obnoxious western movies actors or fripons.
This is not a bit surprising in this day and time
Where old images have stained their brains
Hardened their hearts made of acidic stains
And their internal organs are nothing but slime
We all have seen the racist, ugly and grubby picture
Of these devils who blatantly violated the laws of nature
Thinking that they will get away with murder and sins again
While bragging that the innocent migrant victims are not human
They were wrong yesterday and this morning: Black Lives Matter
Haitian Lives Matter and American Indian Lives Matter
These coward cowboys will go down, as scuzzbags, in history
And they’ll be punished for being cruel, aggressive and creepy.
