Block Party

Social media creates  
its own invitations  
 
So I went  
 
I laughed  
 
I cried  
 
thinking about my dadís last moments  
His last words  
 
They surely werenít  
I canít breathe  
 
Not to the 100 that came to get him  
20 of them got hurt just trying to get at him  
 
A knee on his neck long before that day  
 
So I kneel  
Trying to find the answer  
And they kneeled with me too
