Hoods On For Trevor

April 3, 2013
As a high school junior
Your life held captive
Black hoody
And he assumed
you were criminally active
skittles in your hand
triggered nerves in the white man
mis assumed a weapon
for that arizona can
shoot fired so carelessly
without a second thought
its no mystery
pleaded self defense
but we know that's bulls***
Ran over a black man
with a pickup truck
thats not just bad luck
that can't be mistaken
for racial discrimination
segregation end
Slavery was abolished
so this , really got me astonished
hoods on for Treyonne
We know you moved on
February 26
you will forever be missed

R.I.P Trey !
