...an attack on 'civil society’?
that would be the knee on my neck
I AM CIVIL SOCIETY,
no one called for reinforcements when
your partner's knee closed up my air supply!
calling on the National Guard is
just bringing a larger knee!
why didn’t they call national guard on police?
looks like abdication to me
someone gave up caring about safety
got another name for what
didn’t do to george floyd.
now we can suspend disbelief
that all of us witnessed
a recorded, "inappropriate restraining technique”.
a choke hold (held for too long),
a lynching (that would be gravity's fault),
a fucking murder (by uniform) and
'they' say GEORGE FLOYD
didn’t die from 'positional asphyxia’…
that George Floyd
died of underlying health issues.
i can think of two
underlying 'health issues’
that many of us
already live with
and many of us
already die from.
George Floyd was born with
too much melanin in his armor
(considered a disability in this amerikakaka).
George Floyd choked to death
on the acid and bile rising in his throat,
fear, hate and racism
blocking his windpipe.
i can’t breathe.
