Breonna – Imaginary Journey into a Queen’s Grave

Greg Powell writes a tribute to Breonna Taylor

Breonna

Imaginary Journey Into a Queen's Grave

Cooling at home
In the love zone
She on the phone
I’m flexed to bone
We in the vibe
Hearts open wide
Peace flows inside
We love to hide
Here in the bubble
Far from the troubles
Our love is subtle
She come we cuddle
We sip the wine
My girl so fine
Her lips sublime
Her soul refined
We fly we glide
We flex our pride
Cherish the time
Love gold we mine
The night so right
Our own star light
Her smile shine bright
She my delight
And then
The door cracks in
Some wicked men
Breaking in
Fear descends
Time stream bends
The night upends
Strangers in the night

I say the name
Breonna Taylor
The Creator made her
The bullets sprayed her
The nation preyed her
Police state slayed her

Who this smashing door
Scaring Queen I adore
A killing crew hardcore
Stalking on killing floor
No announce they pounce
We trapped can’t bounce
Demon shadows advance
No escape no chance
Our sweet romance
Ends in death dance
Perspiration desperation
They seek our expiration
Systematic extermination
Like Nazi German nation
They learned that shit here
Land of bloody tears
Where we burn in fear
But we persevere
The lynching crews
They don’t come by twos
They come by tens
I got to defend
Even if they send
Me to the pen
I grab my Glock
I fire the shot

I say the name
Breonna Taylor
The Creator made her
The bullets sprayed her
The nation preyed her
Police state slayed her

Never said they cops
Maybe they special ops
Making bodies drop
Like strange fruit crop
They open clips
With sneering lips
Hot lead dips
Into my love’s hips
Gun boom of doom
Dreams bust/ blood balloon
Her womb a tomb
In conception room
Of our future bloom
Slip on blood pool
In come cop costume
In haze of death fumes
Our love consumed
And now hate resumes
I’m under arrest
As my screams crest
Face on bloody floor
We can’t take no more
Face on bloody floor
Ain’t gonna take no more

I say the name
Breonna Taylor
The Creator made her
The bullets sprayed her
The nation preyed her
Police state slayed her
