Cop Out. Derek Chauvin denied his all-too-obvious guilt, His good lawyer argued his lousy case to the hilt, Tried to frame Floyd's death as a 'medical mystery,' Pity Derek's knee on the neck was there for all to see. Once a cop could blow off an 'escape attempt,' Treat 'alleged' brutality with a smile of contempt, Once any cops perjur-ative testimony was enough; Now a cheap cell phone video will call Derek's bluff. And so, the damning evidence was played; That don't look good for Derek, I'm afraid; Derek, looking all innocent won't succeed; Jurors, how much evidence do you kneed? Deep down Derek knew the jury's verdict could be no surprise Though a flicker of emotion darkened those lizard-like eyes, Yes, behind his mask how truly sorry (for himself) he feels- His first day inside and he'll be sucking down liquid meals. There are so many inside who'll happily rearrange his smile, So many too ready to mete out some justice without a trial, He's prayin' hard for a solitary sentence, the full 24 hours; Beats being on his knees whenever he visits the showers.
Not quite the picture of innocence?
