I Was Taught Respect

From a young child
respect was taught
for those whose lives
our safety bought

It mattered not
what badge they wore
more important
the oath they swore

A debt we owed
of gratitude
freely given
without attitude

Killing police
condoned by blacks
proves just what
this country lacks

Following God
His laws to keep
was in our hearts
conviction deep

Yet to believe
today brings scorn
an evil soul
in us was born

If once again
we put God first
He’d prosper us
and lift our curse!

Necessary

Why do you feel it
necessary
or feel justified

When you advocate
that killing police
should even be tried?

Randomly select
an innocent man
and shoot him’s not “bad”

Go take another’s life
to retaliate
just because you’re mad?

What of these 5 men?
Guilty of nothing
to murder about

Keeping people safe
while protesting them
when the shots rang out

Not even thinking
killing them was wrong
tells a whole lot

Like morality
common courtesy
and right or wrong’s forgot

Calculating ones
who go run their mouths
I feel are to blame

They’re just pretending
they aren’t prejudice
what a crying shame

When all the power
to end this madness
lays right in their hands

They would much rather
lay the guilt on whites
for none understands

Since slavery days
the plight of the blacks
hasn’t changed at all

And black lives matter
so shoot up the streets
and watch the cops fall

That makes us even
for offenses committed
two hundred years ago

But we weren’t alive
to own any slaves
or injustice show

Consider that without
rose-colored glass
come on now get real

I will stand behind
the ones dressed in blue
’cause that’s how I feel!
