A Crime to BE Sick

Walking on the Santa Rosa Streets- A Tribute to Hermano Andy Lopez

Andy  Lopez was only 13.  

Walking down the same Santa Rosa street

A toy gun strapped on his belt 

The Po Po saw him & even tho he

was jus a kid-to them he was a thief

he bout' to put

the gun down but he dint' know

police yelling at him tellin' him "This

aint a show!" 

 

Would You?

Not sure what to feel

 

So lost in this maze of kolonizer-created traditions

Consumer lies, pain & exploitation

For so many years I can hardly stand it
