Darnella Frazier – A Quadrille
Because you bothered
There is a record
The indisputable proof
of what actually occurred
in the face of adversity
will be remembered
Without your actions
this nation would never
have known the truth about
George Floyd’s death
We thank you

De Jackson (aka Whinsy Gizmo) is hosting Monday Quadrille
at D'Verse Poets and has prompted us with the word "Bother"
Today, here in the US, the jury will now decide on
the fate of Derek Chauvin who killed George Floyd
before our eyes in May of 2020. The very brave
Darnella Frazier, who was only 17 at the time, took a video
of the events so we were all able to see what happened.
Thank you Darnella. You are very brave.
