AG Barr Slams BLM, Rightfully So


Almost all of us believe that you should not be killed by the police due to color of your skin

Probably why the slogan Black Lives Matter among all was such an easy win

But sadly the idea and the slogan was a farce and a sham

Only a means to the police and maybe the Reds to slam

Had nothing to do with a black being killed

Only those who due to police misconduct were part of the butchers’ bill

Black on black shootings in Blue run cities BLM would ignore

Even though compared to police shootings totaled maybe a 100 to 1 more

Worse to BLM if you became a cop to protect and serve

You weren’t now not black enough and BLM outrage no longer deserved

Worse BLM seemed to morph into a rioting reparations justification

As looting and riots following police killing blacks spread across the nation

AG Barr was right to the BLM condemn and attack

A fraud on black deaths outrage it totally lacks

Too many due to the Floyd’s and Blake’s death are infected with white guilt

Drawn to the streets and statues to destroy what we have built

Time to put BLM to the ultimate test

Do all black lives matter or only those killed by cops before or during an arrest
