My best friend died today in a pool of blood,
Shot by a cop.
He was protesting for equality
But none of that matters to those boys in blue.
They came within minutes,
Dragging protesters and throwing them in the squad cars.
How many will we see again?
Not my friend.
He tried to stop the cops from beating his girlfriend.
So they shot him.
When they are asked about it weeks later they will say
“He should’ve known his place”
Yet they never have to learn theirs…
