Riot!

Riot!

We wrote a letter after he died

We made t-shirts as memorial

We began a social media campaign

We asked the murders to take an eye exam

We called our neighbors and formed a cop watch

No one heard us

Our efforts muted

We grew restless

We saw red

We marched

We had a sit-in

Still

Nothing

We unified

We protested

We rioted

They heard us then

We were meet with the same force that took his life

“We are here to keep the peace”

Is what they said

We placed our two fingers in the air

As they pointed their pieces in our face & yelled

RUN!
