Ode To Eric Garner

by Rodger L. Hilliard

Bull Connor wannabes, do as they please. 

Under the color of law... so forget all about what you think you saw.

Even still, what you saw is what you saw... but not against the law

It doesnít matter... ... 

Because you donít matter, because I donít matter, because we donít matter.

So what is...The Matter?  

"I canít breathe!" "I canít breathe!"

Coward ass DAís protects the coward ass cop,

Seen it all before, will it ever stop? 

Same old, same old... ... like we didnít already know.

This ainít no new news, for me and my kin.  

This ainít no new news, for me and my skin.

1960ís... all over again!

A deep dark ugly history repeating itself, 

The real time, media powered revelation of America.... 

defeating itself.

"I canít breathe!" "I canít breathe!"
