2.19.21 – When Texas Freezes Over

When Texas freezes over
There will be tiny assassins
Taking lives,
Shutting down restaurants
And schools,
Keeping Grandma behind glass
As she closes her eyes.

When Texas freezes over
The Capitol will be ransacked.
Confederate flags will fly freely
Under the Dome of Democracy.
A Viking will lead the charge
Down the Halls of the Republic
With both young and old behind.

When Texas freezes over
Innocent men will be strangled in the streets
And homes will not be safe
From the peacekeepers.
It will be a crime to be Black.

All that
When Texas freezes over.
