HOW MANY TIMES MUST WALTER SCOTT DIE?


           

      

'Tween morning, and afternoon ... I'd (easily) already seen his death, fifty times (five oh). Each channel/station not content to play it. But to play it endlessly. On closed loop, over and over. And over again. In the first twelve media hours, his death seen by more people. More times. Than the Zapruder film.


How Many Times Must Walter Scott Die?

As if television were invented
To show his demise
Or radio, to playback
All eight bullets ... whizzing by

Walter Scott will die
A thousand, thousand more times
Until the tears of eye

Are washed away, by the blood
The blood of a white guy

And then another ...
Upon the pyre
As the riots begin

Then Chris Hayes
And Joy Ann Reid
And Android Cooper

Can increase the width and breadth
Of their sh*t eating grins
While joyously dancin' 'pon the the grave

Of Walter Scott
Over and over again
