TAKE A KNEE

Due to continued ignorance, perpetuation of racist patriotism, and reshaping of the NFL narrative regarding kneeling players, the sole author of FreshNewsNow shares his sentiments with a poem.

“Written All Over” Composed as of: August 18

FUCK POLICE BRUTALITY

EVER SO OFTEN

WE SEE THE MINORITY

LAID DOWN IN A COFFIN

 

MOTHERS WEEP AUNTS LOSE SLEEP

OVER THEIR SLAIN NEPHEW OR NIECE

WHAT AN INCREDIBLE FEAT

TO SHOOT A BLACK MAN POINT BLANK IN THE STREET

 

ONLY TO RECEIVE ADMINISTRATIVE LEAVE

“NOT GUILTY YOUR HONOR” HOW THE WHITE COP PLEADS

AND THE WHITE JUDGE KNOWS

HIS EXACT ROLE

 

CIRCUMSTANTIAL EVIDENCE IS WHAT HE CANNOT SHOW

BECAUSE WITHIN THE CONTEXT

WE ALL KNOW

A PIG’S FEAR IS WRITTEN ALL OVER HIS SNOUT NOSE
