No Place in Penn
Disenfranchisement is your System. I say his name each time I remember this: My mind has come to know the pain I feel each day the courts delay, remind us all, my stepson had no place in Penn. No student has a place in Pennsylvania.
This blog is in memory of my stepson, murdered by his roommate.
Who never got to know a blog. Who never got to show his cape of genius
Of our day. Instead, we boxed him up and dared not say, even today
The vicious word. The way you were killed
In the state that treated you, a student in his twilight, without social status.
I love you and wish to say your name every day it takes for justice too
To say your name
And tell the world, “No more will the poor have no place in Penn.”
