A stealthy agent suffocates prey inconspicuously transforming hugs, kisses, and family into weaponry. The non-essential world closes and we are quarantined. How long have I been sleeping? This has to be a bad dream.
Pervasive misinformation begins infecting the mind. The media challenges us to discern between truth and lies. Corrupt ass leaders continue grappling at the mic, resourcing fear and confusion to create a large divide.
Uninformed and unprepared, humans are ambushed by the beast. Healthcare and essential workers fight without armour or PPE. In Black and Indigenous communities, health supplies are lacking. Is this fucking genocide? The brown bodies just keep stacking.
Unemployment on the rise, people don’t want to stay home, fighting over masks, tension and stress continue to grow. Distracted by unknowns, a second threat approaches slow suffocating George Floyd to death, horrified we watch his soul go.
Agent number two is even more insidious than number one. Evolving over hundreds of years, it has quietly become a fake democracy of hypocrisy fueled by systemic oppression. Sleeping people wake, galvanized by agents covid19 and racism.
A revolution energized by thousands in solidarity, Blacks, whites, LGBTQ, the Amish, witches, and POC. Who knew the smoking guns to expose racial injustice and inequality, would unite love warriors in the battle against the powers that be.
