A Man Was Lynched 8 Months Ago

A man was lynched 8 months ago
A massage therapist in Colorado
He used to play the violin 
For the cats at the shelter next door

A man was lynched 8 months ago
He had his ID on him
He was walking home
He was apologizing to the cops attacking him
He loved to dance

A man was lynched 8 months ago
He didn't like to eat meat
He didn't judge people that did
He didn't know why they were attacking him
He didn't even kill flies

A man was lynched 8 months ago
He offered to sacrifice his identity 
He told them they were phenomenal 
They were beautiful and he loved them 
He begged for their forgiveness. 

A man was lynched 8 months ago
He was an introvert
He was just different
I didn't know him
I learned all of this from him
In the final moments of his life
Before all he could do was vomit and cry
This is the fire next time
