Mother, help me,mother I can’t breathe

He went inside a shop to buy some bread
Then minutes later he was lying dead
Life is so precarious   every day
Police are meant to help us on our way

United now the entire world  protests
A video of a man with neck compressed
Mother, help me.mother I can’t breathe
Oh,Jesus, you were killed between two thieves.

Now, he has been buried let  us note
No man is an island,John Donne wrote
We are all connected,  make  new laws
Ask why this  man’s murder gave us pause

Who believes, the black  folks,killed, oppressed
Were never by the government addressed?
