Running

And he was running 

when they shot him in the back 

and he was running 

and they shot because he’s black

and he was running 

and they said he grabbed a gun 

and he was running 

though he never reached for one 

he was just running

our tax dollars gunned him down 

while he was running

they steal life from black and brown 

and keep them running 

it’s now been 400 years 

and they’re still running 

through our alligator tears 

they’re always running…
