Trayvon Martin RIP "Never Again Yo' Hip Hop Poetry

  • "Never Again Yo" is a tribute to the murder of Trayvon Martin in particular and all innocent victims of crime, police brutality, injustice and war! This is hot spoken word-hip hop poetry with a seriously hot beat!

    Never Again Yo!

    Yo, My Blood is boiling yo
    Cause they keep shooting down our babies and they let the murderers go

    But when a football player hurts a dog he goes to jail
    It looks like we can no longer let this system fail us!

    So this time around

    They’ll be no witness tampering
    No Scapegoating
    No Fabrication of Evidence
    No sprinkling a little crack on the victim
    No District Attorney’s bowing down
    No Judges being bought
    No so-called friends on the television…telling lies to your vision
    There will be
    No unanimous decision
    From a jury of so-called peers
    No changing of venues to racist towns

    This time around
    We the people
    Won’t be caught up in mass deception
    For this time
    We’ll be putting it down

    Allowing our souls to ascend
    Remembering all of the previous Trayvon Martins
    We say “Never Again”!

    Never again will we be undecided
    Confused or divided
    The Muslims, Jews and Christians
    Bloods, Crips and El Rukins
    Blue collar and white collar
    Will be united
    The lightskin with the darkskin
    The rich with the poor
    Because if we haven’t learned anything else
    We now know one thing for sure
    That we are one!
    The people of the sun
    And we’ll fire upon Babylon
    With the truth of our tongues
    Our enemies might start the fight
    But we’ll be the victors in the end
    Cause we’ve come a long way baby
    Now we say Never Again!

    They’ll be no blaming our President
    No hiding behind the blue wall of silence
    No Appeal for calm and non violence

    We will use every resource that we got
    Starting with a nationwide boycott
    They’ll be no new suits for Easter
    No turkeys for thanksgiving
    No Christmas
    We’ll do Kwanzaa
    They’ll be no scratching where we don’t itch
    No status quo
    No business as usual
    Antagonist heads will role
    Our holocaust must end
    And to that end
    We’ll say
    Never again!
