Long live Hugo, my brother for life

I know a lot about Hugo and respect Hugo and all the Big Six. I’m housed in Sacramento State Prison on New Folsom’s C-yard and was really hurt when Hugo died.
When I’m hurt and mad, I do dumb things that used to get me in all kinds of trouble. I learned how to take my anger and turn it into poems.
I shared this poem with brothers who knew Hugo, and they asked me to send it to the Bay View.
Black August 12, 2015
August 12, 2015, a strong warrior felled
Warrior cries all day long
Hugo battled like a beast and paved the way for me
Hugo, you made this world safe
You will always be a true Afrikan warrior to me
Long live Hugo – tears running down my heart
I said “Long live Hugo” with my fist raised high
It’s time to battle
It’s time to yell that soldier cry: One, two, three, let’s go!
It’s time to ride and turn that wild beast loose
Hugo, you will never be forgotten
Them tears are stamped on my heart
Long live Hugo!
You will always be my brother for life.
