King said he’d been to the mountain top,
Said he’d seen the Promised Land,
But what promise?
Another black man dead.
Officer knelt on George Floyd’s neck.
He was handcuffed.
He was surrounded by three other Policemen.
They will say they were afraid.
Afraid of what?
Afraid of who?
Fear is the mask they wear
To disguise the monster
They harbor inside
The private corners of their worlds.
Is their fear real or is it imagined?
Is it sick?
Is it madness?
How many videos will it take?
Or is it just the same old America
Being what America has
