“Untangle that Mess” by Menoukha Case

Untangle that Mess (a Long Line Skinny)

Truth Thomas said, “To suggest that Barack Obama is responsible for Donald Trump is like suggesting the NAACP is responsible for the Ku Klux Klan.”

When you run into slippery cordoning redirection you can untangle that mess –

or cut the knots with a blade,

throw the shredded rope in the trash.

They’ll keep telling you that people shot or strangled on the street or dead in their jail cells are responsible for the policeman who killed them.

When you run into slippery cordoning redirection you can untangle that mess –

and do what you have to do for justice.

Replace with #BlackLivesMatter.

Replace with #SayHerName.

When you run into slippery cordoning redirection you can untangle that mess –

Barack Obama is responsible for Donald Trump? Truth Thomas said, “To suggest that is like suggesting the NAACP is responsible for the Ku Klux Klan.”
