No justice with facts abundance
you can’t tell me nothing!
Skin color plus authority of the law
wins again
after killing an innocent soul with intent
If it was a brother in those shoes
even with no evidence
there his life go
forever behind the bricks to die slow
We all seen the video, a knee to the juggler
a winless soul screaming for his mother
Hoping they let him go
Let him breathe
Instead momma was his last scream
Now he rest in peace
but not in the streets
Souls of love embraced on march
22 years was given
just cause the power of position
Chauvin had a mask on
but you could see him grinning
Had the nerve to speak after sentence
like I didn’t mean for it to come to this
He will serve half his time with evidence
What about thousands locked up
with fraudulent evidence
Skin color played apart
plus dollars and cents
The less fortunate locked up in a pit
Basic assumptions and lies
reason I’m still doing time
They gave $27 mill to the Floyds
like here is a precious gift
No money is worth a life for a gift
Wrong is wrong, right is right
There was no justice today
with all the truth to light
A disrespectful blow to a precious life… George Floyd…
No justice!!!!
