The Spirits Are Watching The Big Payback

I see that I must repost this blog from last year that I reposted from the following year regarding the historical marker that signifies where Emmitt Till’s body was dropped in that river, in that state, by those vile white men. Well, I created this poem to deliver a message to all those white folks that think it’s cool to use that marker for target practice still. I wanna let them know that all the black saints who gave their lives fighting against racial hatred are watching. You wanna know something that’s really true “payback is a bitch”, and the price of payback will be large and my God will deliver his justice in due time. You cannot kill Emmitt Till but once but Emmitt Till’s spirit well that’s eternal and my God and Emmitt are watching.
