Riot!

#VocalNPM

Protect ya neck.

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!
