I saw a young man kneel today

He hung his head as if to pray

But he would take a life away

To honour and protect they say


Another black man has to die

Before the country questions why

They let enforcers kill and lie

and let another mother cry


Fear and hate mix with malice

A city faces the abyss

A cocktail of vinegar and piss

On the streets of Minneapolis


Despite the horror and the cost

Of this one life and what was lost

We must not let our law accost

Or presidents tweet a glib riposte


Just one death among many more

But this one death was somehow more

Repulsive among the damning score

Perpetrated by the Law


The news says that one hundred k

Died in the good old USA

A heavy toll this judgement day

I saw a country kneel today
