called me a pachuco what with

wearing white te’nis baggy sag

black pantalones

 

a sure ’nuff black and red flag

 

black skull cap black shirt

white county jail t shirt 

guilty before proven different

to match outrageous white kicks

 

it is always proper to review/

renew the knowledge

truth to power the colonized

mind cannot depend defend for itself

burdened by neo-colonial forces

that bind their stare with a loud snarl

stomp loudly when they dance love war

throw stones to hear the window SMASH!

the colonial trail swallow your pride soon

no whimpering no burping no expansion it seams

under colonialism stress is the intended disease

combat overflowing with curative powers $

thus the need to preserve self defense

as combing of loose long dangle of hair

Skinny Walk Warriors that we are

prepare us for the struggle ahead

hold our thoughts in your embrace Father Sun

                                                        Mother Earth

 

we originate from your world of Whirl of Wind

hold us steady and true to our direction I ask

humbly that our ears might hear

                    our sight might see

the condition of our people that in our path

 

to liberation in your presence we perform
