Survey Says 2 (Poetry)

We waited for the verdict as if we couldn’t see the future.

As if we didn’t know it rains when the clouds draw in.

Like his heartbeat falling to a whisper wasn’t enough.

Like it’s only a big deal because Zimmerman ain’t black.

Like Beyonce aint drop “Bow Down Bitches”.

Like His Momma was tweeting the BET Awards too. Like it hasn’t been a year…

Like it even matters now…
