Because I Am Black!

I am George Floyd, your Knee is on my Neck

You! Now or never have you given me any Respect

You treat me like a Paper doll, Roll me into a little ball, then dump me in the trash

I am George Floyd, your KNEE is on my NECK

The colour of my skin has been your nemesis

Why? I do not know because my God made me so

The same God who made your pink skin!

God has a sense of humour, He wanted to see how we’d get along

You call yourselves Christians, you quote the Good Book to suit your own needs

Even though it teaches us that we are all one, all God’s children

When I speak, you try to silence me

You say I am aggressive

You treat me like I am nothing, Invisible me

When I get angry, you KNEEL on my Neck

You stop me while I am walking because I am BLACK

When I ask why, you respond, “you look like someone BLACK”

You stop me while driving because I am BLACK

When I ask why, you respond with a drawn gun

When I raise my hand you respond again, “this can’t be your car, you must have stolen it!

​You can’t afford it because you are BLACK”

You come into my flat and take me out, SHOT

You respond with, “You are a burglar in your own flat that I though was mine.”

You come into my house like the Gestapo did

Guns blazing, firing 20 shots, 8 into my body

You killed me then you left because I am BLACK

I am George Floyd, your KNEE is on my NECK!

When I retaliate, you threaten to SHOOT and unleash the DOGS

You still call me “my boy, my girl”

You Refuse to acknowledge that I am a Man or Woman

You see me as inferior or more as non-existent

A figment of your consciousness

So, one more of Me DEAD makes you feel superior

I am George Floyd, your KNEE is on my NECK!

I work alongside you but you don’t give me my due

You THREATEN, you DEGRADE, albeit Suttle, but you do

You smile in my face but it’s all Fake

Because you don’t know me, how to take

Because I am BLACK

I am George Floyd, your KNEE is on my NECK!

How dare I educate me?

Because I need to be twice as good as you, to make it in your space

Even though it makes no case/you still oppress me

Because, I am BLACK

I am George Floyd and your KNEE is on my NECK

Almost a hundred years ago, May 21, 1921

You killed 300 of me, burned more of me out, displaced more than 10,000 of me

On the anniversary, Monday, May 25, 2020

You came after me, Premeditation on you, First Degree Murder it should be

Because I am BLACK

I am George Floyd, your KNEE is on my NECK

You are smart, I give you that, cunning even

You turn our own against us

In the guise of the BLUE Line against BLACK

You spout your Rhetoric, “I feel your pain, I understand how you feel.”

But you don’t, you could never understand

Because I am BLACK and you are not

I am George Floyd, your KNEE is on my NECK

You smile and you grin, you pat me on the head

You say, “You know I got this, You do that.”

You continue to patronize while you claim as your own, that what I do

Because I am BLACK

I am George Floyd, your KNEE is on my NECK

You pick my brain, steal my thunder, elevate yourself and

Because I am BLACK, you say, stay BACK!

I am George Floyd, your KNEE is on my NECK

My hair you do not like

My clothes you hate more

The shape of me, the colour of my skin

Because I am BLACK

I am George Floyd, your KNEE is on my NECK

God says, “Vengeance is Mine”

When that will be, your guess is as good as mine

So come November, All we who are BLACK

To the Polls we MUST go and vote Against

ALL THOSE WHO HAVE THEIR KNEE ON OUR NECKS!

I am George Floyd, your KNEE is on my NECK!
