#BLM - Poem by Niah Ester

Y’all got us effed up
Y’all hide behind a badge
Hide behind a gat
But without them 2 things y’all ain’t cut like that
I hope they taint your name
I hope you drown in shame
I hope you rot in jail because you're the one to blame
SAY HIS M******* NAME
George Floyd
Because y’all effed with us before and we tried peacefully
Y’all messed with George...now you gone get the knee
We’ve had enough
Lynching my people publicly
If people die...people die
But i’ll be danged if it’s my people and me
Now what’s it gone be
Give us justice willingly
Or not
Just know we gone ain’t be the only people that bleed
No justice, No m**** peace!
