Al Sharpton AWOL When Blue LIves Executed

Police officers upon receiving their badge swear to go forth and protect and serve
Not to go forth and die to satisfy some sick coward who believes death is what all cops deserve
Deputy Darren Goforth of the Harris County Sheriff’s office was a ten year vet
For his going forth to protect and serve the citizens of Harris County owe him a great debt
Deputy Goforth after an uneventful traffic stop
Drove to a gas station to his tanks to fill to the top
When unseen and from behind came Shannon Miles, a long rap sheet  black
Like all cowards shot this deputy in the head and in the back
An innocent deputy on the ground bleeding slowly out
Shot again and again by Miles, to end this one sided deadly bout
Where is Al Sharpton to this execution with street rallies protest?
Where is the DOJ Hate Crime Unit to a hate crime suggest?
So Black Lives Matter only when by police they are killed?
But Blue Lives don’t; even when without provocation more caskets with them are filled
No warrants being served, not an attempt to a criminal arrest, not even a traffic stop
No just a sick mind deciding it was time to without warning walk up and execute a cop
And Black Lives don’t, when the gun is held by another black
Pathetic way in cases of murder for a society to react
All lives mater, be they black, brown, white, yellow, red and all colors in between
Regardless of the color of the shooter sought at another one too many crime scene
