They

The cops turned the lock

No knock

At the crack of dawn

Within ten seconds

At least three pops.

Another innocent Black man

Gun permit carryin’

Amir Locke

Is shot

Dead!

In the words of Gil Scott-Heron

“ No knocked on my brother Fred Hampton

Bullet holes all over the place

No knocked on my brother Michael Harris

And jammed a shotgun against his skull.”

No knocked in Minneapolis

On our innocent Brother Amir Locke

Laying blanket covered on a couch

Sleeping.

Now lying dead in morgue

And family is outraged

And

Weeping.

Still no justice

Still no peace.
