As the world is up in arms over the death of George Floyd, let us reflect on the alleged crime he is deemed guilty of, passing a dud $20 bill. Yes, he had a history – drug abuse and violent crime – which he did his time for, serving his debt to society. It doesnt mean he had to die for such a crime, unproven, just alleged.
As protest, to show the price of a life in the Land of the Free, the following verse has been written:
Life is not free in the Land of the Free
Life is cheap if you happen to be
Not white, but if you are white and a cop
You get a call to anser a complaint of a shop
You are free to press down on a mans neck till he dies
Ignore his pleas and his cries
Ignore his vitals subsided, get in medics way
You are the law, and all do what you say…
Life is cheap if black you happen to be
In the attentions of a cop in the Land of the Free.
