A Final Tribute

This video is a final tribute to Cletis Stump on Twitter. It was an honor to feature his work here on my blog occasionally.

I can say no more than what it says . . . for those who knew him, may you enjoy this walk down memory lane. For those who didn’t, may you get to know him.

Love is a verb . . .

Psychophants on Parade

psychophants

impotent and weak
he poses for
the photo op

no head bowed
in reverent prayer

no words
of solace for
those who grieve

holds a Bible
he never read

the psychophants
line up
fools on parade

I Can’t Breathe Sir

I cant breathe

Dedicated to All the Black Men & Women Who Have Lost Their Lives to Police Brutality

as a child
he walks
out the door
mind your manners
yes mama

I can’t breathe sir

peaceful protests
nighttime fires
mothers cry
glass breaks

I can’t breathe sir

strong voices
sing out don’t
destroy … vote
take anger make it
positive

I can’t breathe sir

a weak man
hides underground
yells for more
police power
yells … to divide

I can’t breathe sir

To the Floyd family …
my heart is broken …
may the goddess bring you peace
in this time of great unrest …
may she shower you with grace …
blessings to you all
