Nancy Cut Back on the Botox It's George Floyd Not George Kirby

George Floyd was no saint but after moving to Minneapolis he seemed like he was turning his life around
But all would agree despite any prior record he did not deserve to die with a knee on his neck pinned to the ground
A convicted armed robbery he had served his time
Released, he had started to live a life free of crime
To Minneapolis to become gainfully employed
A truck driver and security guard until Covid 19 closings that job destroyed
Ironic he worked with Chauvin, the man who would later end his life
After recovering from COVID-19 infected strife
Arrested for allegedly passing a counterfeit $20 bill
Pulled from a cop car, cuffed then on to the ground with Chauvin’s knee on his neck to kill
Black men have been killed by police time and time again
Such that many young blacks on police encounters feared not if but when
Hard to imagine a death fortunately caught on camera  with such a profound effect
Across the nation protests and riots and many now believing systematic racism our police to infect
Not a person who had access to a TV, smart phone, radio or computer screen
Did not know about the death of George Floyd as riots and protests became a daily part of the national scene
The Reds under the efforts of Senator Scott
Tried to pass police reform but due to Blues it went for naught
The House under Pelosi with only 3 Red ayes passed a police reform bill
But with provisions like end to qualified immunity it would most likely be killed
When Pelosi was doing her victory spike
Told Floyd’s brother it would be named after Floyd if he liked
She showed the nation how much about Floyd she and the Blues cared until from her lips
The name for the bill not George Floyd but George Kirby from her slipped
Most likely Pelosi’s gaffe was proof that Floyd’s death was only a means to her leftist agenda forward move
Or maybe like a Biden gaffe revealed due to Botox excesses dementia speeding into her cranial grooves
