Does it cost more to die on Friday night?
You know, overtime for the ambulance, emergency
Room, pathologist, mortician, or is there
A Friday night special for folks from the slum
Free bullets if you grab a taser and flee
Free call to my baby mama to let her know I died running
Free obits in the morning paper so your friends
Remember who you were and how you went
Do the dead deserve their brief moment of notoriety?
Can some cop embalm my memory in amber taser light
Or will my life somehow matter, somehow be more
Than just another forgotten lynching, another news cycle
