Three Sonnets from a Mighty Whitey: The George Floyd Legacy

by John Kendall Hawkins

One: Andrew Jackson

The phony Andrew Jackson bill George Floyd

foisted on a convenience store to buy

ciggies that would kill him -- what irony!

Killed by black cancer -- race -- Blacks can't avoid.

And AJ, Trump's fave-o slaver prezzie,

full-throated driver of the Trail of Tears --

The Battle of New Orleans brought him cheers --

found the Democrats, folks called him crazy.

Wed to Rachel ("Awful big o' me!" Grins.)
