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


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


Now lying dead in morgue

And family is outraged



Still no justice

Still no peace.
