An Isolated Incident


It was an isolated incident
There is no pattern of any kind here
Woven in the fabric of everything.

Tortured and murdered for simply
But don’t worry at all – I present
It was an isolated incident.

Caved in with a baseball bat is nothing
These things happen; the single event
Woven in the fabric of everything.

Brown, Mcbride, Garner attacked and dying.
Diallo, Dorismund, Zongo. Don’t dissent
It was an isolated incident.

Nine black people dead at white hands killing
That almost stopped it’s trigger but didn’t
Woven in the fabric of everything.

The legacy of horror is clinging
To that cacophonous endless lament;
“It was an isolated incident.”,
Woven in the fabric of everything.
