Twelve Years a Slave in Texas!

by Keith ‘Malik’ Washington

Toxic death flowin out of the prison’s water spigots.
Beat down and abused by Racist Bigots.
Confederate Grey Uniforms they wear.
Open Pride for White Supremacy on display and laid bare.

I remember all the hate campaigns launched against me.
Too much pain, sleepless nights, my mind not at ease.
FINALLY GRANTED PAROLE IN TWO THOUSAND NINETEEN!
The Creator of the Universe heard my pleas.
But what will become of the comrades left behind?
From my desk at the Bay view—Whom will I SAVE?
Twelve long years in Texas.
In Trump’s New Amerikkka am I still considered a Slave?

I Organized Prison work strikes—-asked for help—little came.
Long Term Solitary confinement was the punishment.
Next door neighbor committed suicide–Driven insane!!

In Huntsville they have the gurney and the needle.
Poison forced into our veins.
Senator Joan Huffman hid the identity of the pharmaceutical corporations,
Senator John Whitmire clandestinely down with the games!
Twelve years a Slave in Texas.
Oh, y’all thought I forgot your names??

In Texas the Warden conspires against you.
The prison guard carries out the Task.
Ligature marks on our wrists and necks.
AG Ken Paxton has no questions to ASK?—COMPLICIT!!!

Governor Gregg Abbott attacked the Panthers.
Comrade Rashid and I Resisted.
Texas contacted the Fusion Center and they gladly
aided and Assisted.
Anarchists and Socialists came to our aid.
Twelve years in Texas and still a god-damn Slave!

There is a debt that must be Paid.
Prison Slave Laborers buried at Central Unit in Mass Graves.
Broken Backs, Whips and Chains.

Today in 2020 Happy Slaves in Texas still work for Free!
Gettin pimped and exploited under the church steeple.
I tried my best to wake them up and transform them all into
SERVANTS OF THE PEOPLE!

Snitches and Rats informed on me.
The Police poisoned my food.
All this and more for striving for righteousness and
fighting for the greater good.

Branded a Black Militant and extremist.
Everyday I was facing hate.
It is I your Comrade–Brother Malik.
THE REAL ENEMY OF THE STATE!

Twelve years a slave in Texas.
No more tears only laughter.
Gettin ready for the next Chapter.
Freedom is Sweet and Love is Pure—NUBE.
They did their damndest to break me baby but
with mutual aid and solidarity I was able to endure.
The Covid-19 Pandemic has the future looking so unsure.

Twelve years a Slave in Texas.
A Living Testimony, here I STAND.
Here to show the world that even the people society
throws away, have the power and strength to HEAL OUR LAND!

Twelve years a Slave in Texas.
A SLAVE NO MORE I BE.
It is now time for all of us to unify and organize in order to set
