Derek Chauvin
the name of a cop
who killed with no reason
who never did stop

The news says this policeman
sat on George Floyd’s neck
instead of doing justice
he said “what the heck”

And while George Floyd struggled
to try to get air
the cop put on more pressure
he just didn’t care

The name of his victim
whose death came so slow
George Floyd was his name
I’m sure that you know

George wasn’t perfect
he sure wasn’t great
but to die in that way
should not be his fate

The cop had a trial
the evidence was great
it was all caught on video
that sealed Chauvin’s fate

Chauvin was convicted of murder
maybe jail is too good
Thank God, the jury convicted
they did what they should

For this cop was supposed to
know what to do
instead, serves life in prison
for the man that he slew
