Truth, crushed to earth, will rise again.
William Cullen Bryant
George Floyd Ahmaud Arbery we say their names
knowing how much more we have to do
than say their names to change this world
live the way we all deserve we watch fires
of Minneapolis hoping what’s burning
are years of injustice listen to the young mayor
once a community organizer in his thirties
the second Jewish mayor of Minneapolis more
vigilant than before watchful of what we don’t understand
what we know for sure is May the real true power
we have when we are all together and then
June and we will persist and vote and find a way
a way we don’t yet know.
