A man has died.
The people choose a side.

The streets swarm.
Racists unite in uniform.

Hands up, don’t shoot!
But how will cops keep us under their boot?

Buildings burn.
The people start to learn.

Bullets fire.
Flames rise higher.

George Floyd, a black man, was killed.
The people raise their fists, strong willed.
