All People Matter!

This haiku was prompted by the recent death of George Floyd, and all people “of color” (men, women, children of every race) who are denied respect, dignity, justice—and a full life.  It’s 2020, and shameful that it remains necessary to declare, “Black Lives Matter”.  All People Matter!


Snagged on mind’s blather

End racial assaults
