For George…

Pen to paper

Let Monument Valley crack and crumble
the Statue of Liberty fall to her knees in tears
another black man has been executed

A knee on the throat intent to murder
a man who never resisted arrest
that he was black gives license

Let the smoke block out the sun and moon
will American institutions wake up now
let there be another revolution for equality
