Poem For Trayvon

by lizard

my hoodie is brown
I got it at REI
I won’t die in it, shot
walking home from the store
I won’t cry out for help
as some non-cop vigilante
confronts me
sparking a chain of events that
will never be known
like the awful fact Trayvon
17 years old
is never coming home

—William Skink

    One thing’s for sure.

    Molotov cocktails are going to be pricey this time around.

    Say kids, what time is it?
    It’s Hoodie Doodie Time!

    It’s Hoodie Doodie Time.
    It’s Hoodie Doodie Time.
    Bill Skink and Hoodie Do
    Say Hoodie Do to you.
    Let’s give a rousing cheer,
    Cause Hoodie Doodie’s here,
    It’s time to start the show,
    So kids let’s go!

    — Max Bucks

    PS: I look at it this way: There are over 300 million people in this country, of which maybe 15 million are black. More than one of them has been shot in the past month.

    Or is it that the OccuPuppies are so yesterday?

    a troll’s craving is never fed
    like a hole that can’t be filled
    their spirit is dim to dead
    and decency, easily killed

    like Windigo their hunger burns
    so trolls feed on those who care
    anger for them, like dirt to worms
    if they were fish, I’d feed them air

      There once was a bleeding heart,
      Who thought he was pretty smart;
      But he turned exceedingly glum,
      When he posted something dumb;
      And the trolls all laid a fart.

        Where Zimmeran’s goin’ won’t be so fun
        ‘Cause in the big house can’t have no gun
        And their ain’t no law like stand your ground
        And LOTS of scary dudes all around.

        Yes little georgie’s gonna have to pay
        For being a wannabee cop that fateful day
        Them fellas in are gonna ignore his pleas
        When he’s learnin’ that you don’t kill black kids over tea!

    So, now the whole story starts to come out: Basically, the kid was a hoodie doper who had a bad case of the munchies and then attacked the wrong guy.

    Read this story in the Orlando Sentinel:

    “Police: Zimmerman says Trayvon decked him with one blow then began hammering his head”

      man, I hate suspicious hoodie doper black kids packing skittles and going ballistic on a do gooder like Zimmerman who never attacked a cop or obsessively called 9-1-1.

    Admit it: You got sucked into another phony Mississippi Burning story by Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan, the JIC, and all the race-baiting liberal media. This Skittles and Arizona Ice Tea Tale is right up there with the Tawana Brawley fraud—

    >>> On November 28, 1987, Tawana Brawley, who had been missing for four days from her home in Wappingers Falls, New York, was found seemingly unconscious and unresponsive, lying in a garbage bag several feet from an apartment where she had once lived. Her clothing was torn and burned, her body smeared with feces. She was taken to the emergency room, where the words “KKK” “Nigger” and “Bitch” were discovered written on her torso with a black substance described as charcoal. <<<

    All lies. But you love them, right?

      It’s not censorship because it’s the personal property of Lizard.

      Go start your own loser blog that no one reads and where no one wants to post, Zoncar (MB)

      You can. But don’t think you have the right to Lizards forum. You don’t own this blog. You are a guest here and you stunk up the place.

        I totally agree, Steve. The only reason I read this blog is to have my own opinions confirmed. I don’t want to be intellectually challenged, and I certainly don’t want hear any new ideas or any ideas contrary to what I already believe.
