A Song...


Trayvon
(with apologies to Elton John and Bernie Taupin)


Trayvon took his chest wound and went down.
He called his shooter “honky.”
That cracker caused him pain,
And sent him to the finest morgue in town.

Trayvon…Trayvon liked his candy.
He ate a lot they say.
Spent his days eating…
And thuggin’…’cuz that was just his way.

He was shot on cold dark night.
Then Farrakhan said, “Tray is dead!”
“Now the war’s begun!”
“The Islam Nation lost a son today!”

What shall we do about Trayvon…
Now that he is a dead man?
What to do about Trayvon…
Maybe Georgie shot him just as he had planned.
What about that fucking Trayvon?
Did he roll up on an armed man?

Glad I ain’t Trayvon…

Trayvon sold some weed to kids in town.
His high school business thrived.
Used to smoke fat blunts all day…
Sit on the front porch getting real high.

But Trayvon…he went and got accosted…
Took a round in his behind.
George didn’t care for the beating…
Then Trayvon…Trayvon slowly died.

He was shot on cold dark night.
And Sharpton said, “Tray is dead!”
“Now the war’s begun!”
“This racist nation killed another son today!”

What shall we do about Trayvon…
Now that he is a dead man?
What to do about Trayvon?
Is Georgie white or a Mexican?
What about that fucking Trayvon?
Did he roll up on an armed man?

Glad I ain’t Trayvon…

  4. Zoomie,

    I have chosen to take on the "Buy a Gun Day 2012" (buyagun2012.blogspot.com) blog started by The Arctic Patriot.

    Not sure I have the muscle to pull this of but it is a great idea and, what the hell.

    Your art work is outta sight. Might you have time to come up with some art work to dress up the sight? I would go into the what for's and why's but am certain you are aware of what's up : )

    Sorry to hijack your post but could not find a contact button.

    In or out, appreciate you!!

Feel free to comment away with your bad-ass selves.

Cursing and foul language is fine...even encouraged here. In fact, I think cussing is fucking wonderful.

Just remember...this is MY house, and I will not be insulted or maliciously messed with here.

Good-natured ribbing is cool, but if you and I don't have some kind of previous relationship, you had best mind your fucking manners or I will relegate you to the intardnets dustbin for being a cunt.

To know me is to love me.

Or something.

Maybe.
