This poem was written in solidarity with the Baltimore rebels
They couldn’t take the heat
egos as fragile as their power structure
bones break, convictions never
they think the lions been put down
more thorn in the paw
they strike what they fear
murderers and brutes, for our safety
our skulls are crunched
you are not the victim
you are a revolutionary
battle tested joining good company
confused pig bastards
forgot that you’re the shark
and the blood is in the water
their violence validates further
the struggle that forces the beast
to view its true self
reflections of hatred and spite
battle tested, keep holding that mirror
I have a little update on Eric. He still hasn’t received anything back from his medical request. Beyond that his light has been out for a week and a half now and they have not changed it. He says this is the first time he has felt lonely since being locked up. At night time when it gets dark it starts to feel super sad for him and has to stand by his window when he wants to read. The other day Eric found chicken under his green beans on his vegan tray, he isn’t sure if it was an accident or a targeted incident.
Eric has been following the Baltimore uprising and sends all his love and solidarity to the folks fighting!
If anyone has been looking for a book to send he really wants to read angelas ashes!!
