Murda.....Confession Of A Weapon

From Write or Die by Byron Wilson (author's profile)

Transcription

Murda
Confession of a Weapon

And in America, for 50 years they argue Gun control,
How are You going to control guns that you don't have,
and You can't ever control the standard issued
weapons that law enforcement officers do have?
The past 17 years, will Breonna Taylor be the last?

They say I'm 50,
but I swear I'm 17 and getting younger
Gun makers mind is hearing screaming
but my Mama thinks it demons of a hunter
visions of victims on their knees
AR-15 gottem knockin' on Hell's door
pledge of allegiance to disease
forehead touchin' on dis mutherfuckin' cell floor
shoot your line I'll show you bodies
and you better not tell nobody bout dis murda
they say I'm 50
but I swear I'm 17 and getting younger

Thank you very much for writing. I have just read and transcribed your poem, which I hope I have done correctly. I thought it was hugely moving, and that your words express a really powerful and important message that a lot of people need to hear. You have a real talent for writing. Thank you again.
