Long live Hugo, my brother for life

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.
