Hey Mitch McConnell

Hey Mitch McConnell... about all this talk (I hear) about indefatigable (Phila/ Philly-buster) Police sirens wail doth punctuate the air ear splitting soundclouds blare another typical arrest (guilty until proven innocent if ever) so much for Black Lives matter protests biased accusations didst plainly reveal how strong arm off the law doth err injustice against persons of color ain't fair discrimination toward mine brethren insnare prejudice against skin color finds white supremacists to jeer I don't blame Senate Minority Leader, yet his clout asserted courtesy gesticulating midair helping to legislate (outside his Kentucky bailiwick) against racial profiling nightmare. I live far from city of brotherly love, a peacemonger at heart else known as a dove yours truly ofttimes seeks succor tilting head above. Nevertheless (meaning no matter yours truly lives safe distance from where citizens take up arms showing themselves mad as a hatter) humility devoid of white privilege, one country bumpkin does flatter himself versus those donning haughtiness trumpeting arrogance, bombasity, conceit..., qua egotistical chatter. Such nonstop ceaseless bluster characterizing prolonged speech never employed courtesy General George Armstrong Custer unbeknownst to above named Civil War fighter, nary non violent stonewalling tactics, he did not muster namely delaying antics named filibuster from Dutch word meaning "pirate" became popular in the 1850s. As an aside, the Battle of the Little Bighorn in Montana a fiasco for said United States Army officer, (a cavalry commander in American Civil War and American Indian Wars) decimated his 7th cavalry regiment against a band of Lakota Sioux and Cheyenne warriors. Native Americans got bum rap essentially their tribes encountered deadly zap, no matter mass slaughter, née genocide occurred (figuratively) fast as fingers snap essentially life, liberty and pursuit of happiness abrogated forever caught in cross hairs of bigotry trap.
