I need my walker
I can’t hear
I can’t breathe
I need my asthma inhaler
 
Dawan Gordon dragged like sack of potatoes
Daniel Harris tried to communicate with his hands
Eric Garner shouted 13 times
Anthony D. Clark gasped for air
 
It’s a toy truck
It’s a clock
It’s a colostomy bag
It’s sign lanuage
 
Autistic young man was the target
Blind man with his talking clock, profiled
Down Syndrome man gets his colostomy bag snatched off 
Deaf man’s signs was seen as a threat
 
Train to protect and serve
Yeah tell me again yeah sure
You got your nerve
As you cover us in Black & Blue
 
You go on your paid vocation
While the DA & judges suite up for your protection
Blood money passed around to lawyers
Seeing you back in the community give us the Blues
 
I need my walker
I can’t hear
I can’t breath
I need my asthma inhaler
 
It’s a toy truck
It’s a clock
It’s a colostomy bag
It’s sign language
 
All of that don’t matter
Forcing us to believe in one answer
Registry, wristbands, i.ds & training
changing our ways but what stays the same are the abusers
