Two NYPD cops killed

When two cops are assassinated by a deranged man
Things in New York City are spiraling completely out of hand
Patrick Lynch charges that their blood is on the hands of mayor
The relations between De Blasio and the cops may be beyond repair
The Garner death was beyond tragic and the grand jury decision to blacks brings despair
But violent protests incited by the mayor are acts rational men should forswear
Three hours before the shots Brinsley was Instagraming he would give cops some wings
A revenge killing after all the warning signs sadly ignored when will another revenge killing spring
Brinsley was black; officers Hispanic and Chinese on an anti-terrorist drill
In a moment paying the extreme butcher’s bill
One wonders why Brinsley’s followers of his Instagram raves
Did not tip the police with a simple phone call to the two cops save
We need calm and if there should be protests in the street
There should be not words but demonstrations over the need to black racism defeat.
