Ferguson Protesters Beat Sick Old Man

IN FERGUSON THEY BEAT A MAN WHO WAS ON AN OXYGEN TANK

 

A master is a perpetrator and a slave is a slave is a slave.

The blacks hate their former masters.

But in Ferguson the punks master an old man

Who sucks on an oxygen tank

And beat him

Into the lining of the ground-sea

Just because he is white,

Vanilla, a honkey.

He is not wearing scuba gear for sport.

He is trying to suck life out of approaching death.

I smell the stench of reverse racism.

They run him over,

After he is car jacked;

He is somewhat whacked.

The black punks inherit the violence of the white master.

The old man is a dying feud.

The slaves could have been so much better.

They could have stood up for the justice

They felt they never received.

They could have done themselves proud

Instead of dirty.

They could have been human beings instead of slaves

Turned slave owners.

They could have been proper masters instead

Of masturbators of violent porn.

They could have been pacifists instead of G-strings

Tightening an old man’s strangulation.
