did eric garner pose a threat while shouting i can't breathe? did trayvon martin scare you with those skittles in his hand? did aiyana stanley-jones frighten you with that toothless grin and barrettes? do i, myself, pose a threat? does your shiny badge and black bat give you the power you never had? does the death of the innocent make you feel better and glad that there is less of us and more of you? should we walk with our hands up or bound behind our backs for you to stop this attack? should we cover our mouths with our hands or duct tape so you can not hear the curses and pain, the brutality that escapes them like blood from our wounds? why does the gun in your hand control the lives of us, why do you get to play God and toy with us? why is it that you pick and choose who dies in this awful game because of the gun on your waist, because of your badge and your name? why did all those boys and girls have to die? why did you give my community more reasons to curl up and cry? why did we break from chains to fall into your handcuffs, unrightfully bound by your blinding hate? why did we escape those whips for you to empty your clips in us like the dummies in your practice range? why do you suddenly sit in a throne above us, glimmering in the blood of those you killed (God, all those people you killed) because of your badge? who gave you the right to kill us? who gave you the right? who gave you the right? who gave you the right? when you shoot one, you shoot us all, so with bullets in my chest, and lead lodged so deep, i ask, why us, why me?
