It’s Open Season yet again

The young prey in his natural habitant

Roams, uninhibited, vulnerable and unsuspecting

of the heartless hunter on the prowl

 Stocking his prey, the hunter hunts in the dark, lurking in the shadows.  

 

BANG! BANG! BANG!

 

Stun, the prey screams out as

he falls down bloody helpless, in great pain to the ground

 

He yells out for help watching his hunter approach

Lights come on around him but no one comes to aid

 

The hunter stands over his prey giddy

The prey pleads helplessly

 

BANG! BANG! BANG!

 

The hunter has his prize to mount on his wall

A license to kill, like his fathers father before him,

Guiltless

 

How long will this go on?

How long will killing of a black person is no crime at all?

How long will this person go unpunished?

How long before Trayvon find his justice?

How long?
