Trayvon Martin

Count how many of our sons don’t have surnames.

Count how many of their fathers won’t see 45.

Count all the crack fiends on your finger-toes.

Wake up my black family and raise your fists.

I saw there a slightly black guy living in the White House.

What’s going on in there?

Like a fool, I ignored the gossip news

Once Tupac, dead.

(In memory of Trayvon Martin, fatally shot, February 26, 2012. May your soul rest in peace.)
