Oh, how he entertained us! Little did we know Our superhero was dying slow
On the 57th anniversary of The March on Washington, With “Get Your Knee Off Our Necks“ As the 2020 theme, He met his fate.
While so many in the world are Trying to push a warped narrative Of how to “Make America Great”
His character was the force behind A fictional world that gave us pride. A shield of defense against hate.
And unite, even if momentarily, we did.
He fought a four-year battle alone. Yet, it ended with so much clarity. Reminding us that cancer Doesn’t give a f**k about celebrity
Wakanda forever. It’s real to me.
Chadwick Boseman, You are free.
Whose superhero will you be?
