Haiku x 5

Not far from my home

A man breathed his last - murdered

Held down cuffed and knee'd


"I can't breathe," one, two...

More times than necessary

Wanting life, not death.


"To protect and serve" - 

The police motto. Who? When?

Not here, not us, not.


Words will be spoken

Protests starts, anger rises...

How will this all end?


George Floyd; say again

His name, speak truth to power

And use all our strengths.
