They show George Floyd’s murder over and over
but it’s not bringing him back to life
Have some fucking respect for him and his family!
Stop fucking traumatizing us!
That clip is brainwashing us to reach a mindless frenzy.
Mandatory masks are backfiring
they’re a perfect disguise for anonymous violence
stick them up sublime irony.
Anarchy is thriving in North America
in an urban war like never before.
It was a perfect storm that they created.
They caged and made us jobless
the new norm is homeless
months of lockdown deranged us
rearranged our brain’s rhythm.
Shelter-in-place empowered a prison revolt.
Now the guards are afraid of us.
Massive crowds are gathering
foaming at the mouth
baseball bats in hand, burning trash cans
turning the streets into an apocalypse scene
Night of the Living Dead kind of theme.
It’s a total social distancing failure to say the least.
People are sick of the months of conflicting rules and uncertainty
trusting in a government that has no clue what to do.
Fuck the CDC, Dr. Fauci and the W.H.O.’s recommendations.
We’ve let them take us to the brink of self-destruction.
I’m tired of the game too, but be smart about it.
Police aren’t the true source of power
they’re just the soldiers following orders.
The real rulers move countries and people
like chess pieces, they strategize and sacrifice us
to their ultimate advantage.
Stock market’s crashing on purpose
while the mega wealthy hoard all the gold in bunkers.
The jobs aren’t coming back no matter what you’re told.
You can blame orange-faced Trump all you want
but he’s another pawn, one of many puppets
QAnons are waiting for dead JFK Jr to rise up like a GQ Jesus
and Progressives are diverting $ relief to cannabis clubs
because their hands are all over that goldmine profit.
Cannabis is a numbing balm for suffering
but it resolves nothing
it’s the Blue Pill of coping and amnesia.
When I see these anger skirmishes
by white dudes in shorts on skateboards
smashing CNN’s windows and hurling rocks at cops
behind rainbow umbrellas, I think WTF?
I hate MSM too but this isn’t the way to prove a point
but mobs are so easily distracted by the glory of anarchy.
They attack the surface not the deep core.
They make it worse for the rest of us.
I feel sorry for the good cops
the ones who are protectors not the power trippers.
When you’re getting robbed, raped, beaten up
and they’re the ones helping you,
will you thank or blame them?
They didn’t create this fucked up world all by themselves.
Imagine standing in a line shoulder to shoulder
while assholes throw glass bottles and boulders at you.
Everyday cops are shell-shocked by violence
it makes some trigger happy, afraid and angry
those are the deviant cops that need to be fired and jailed
don’t attack all of them.
But Anarchy is full of blind rage
destruction for its own sake hurts the innocent.
It burns aimlessly and hopelessly towards no future.
I grieve for all the innocent victims of violence.
I grieve for workers who have no job to return to.
I grieve for the ignorance of rioters
who destroy their own communities.
I grieve for children who have to cope
with the broken world we’ve given them.
It feels like the end of the world.
