You were shooting in the dark
Succumbed to your conditioning
adrenaline and false positioning
No evidence, no threats, nothing...
Blinded by your motivation
Guided by your determination
you found a moving target
Convinced, you fired 20 times
you shot your gun 20 times
Each shot, like sharp neon buzzing signs
Spat out one by one 20 times
Now tell me,
when you close your eyes at night
do your pathways light up the flight
To your inner rabid dog, frothing
it’s blood thirsty depraved appetite?
I ask you this because
how else could you shoot at a man 20 times?
In the dark
never once knowing Stephon Clark...
Never once being harmed
Like rabies, a grotesque disease
Running rampant through
Our blue uniformed elite
Shame on those who are infected
And those who stand by the elected
Men and woman whose fiery insides
Aim to kill, not to protect black lives
Like a dog, he can be a man’s best friend
He will have your back till the very end
But be he rabid there is no mend
To this racist feast he must defend!
