The Queen And Meghan Tanka

written in response to Charlie Hebdo's cartoon cover

on the cover
the Queen pins Meghan down
with her knee --
a black man groans
'everything is now satire'

FYI: Magazine cover showing Queen Elizabeth II kneeling on Meghan's neck sparks outrage, NBC News., March 13

The image in French magazine Charlie Hebdo is a cartoon recreation of George Floyd's death when a Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck for nearly nine minutes.
