living while black

don’t breath

or sleep

don’t drive

or wear a hoodie

don’t get sick

or suffer poverty

don’t do drugs

or carry a weapon

don’t breath

or speak

don’t shop

or make mistakes

don’t complain

or go out at night

don’t protest

or live

don’t breath

or we will kill you

don’t breath

or we will question you

don’t breath

or you will be guilty

don’t breath

unless you are white

don’t make mistakes

unless you are white

don’t suffer human vulnerability

unless you are white

don’t live with life liberty and the pursuit of happiness

if you are black

in America

home of the white

home of the slave

home of the rich

murder of the poor

land of the privileged

land of segregation

land of walk the line

killing of the meek
