It's Time to Take a Stand
Contrasting two Georges

by Greg Asimakoupoulos

George Bailey had a wonderful life,
four charming kids, a loving wife.
In Bedford Falls, George had no fear
when Bert the cop stopped by.

While Potter did breathe down his neck
and caused poor George some disrespect,
when everything was said and done
he had it pretty good.

But (say his name) George Floyd despaired.
The cops (where he lived) were not fair.
They kneed his neck and took his life.
No, justice wasn't served.

By George, this is a time to grieve
as each of us takes time to breathe
while cognizant of those who can't.
It's time we take a stand!
