IN MEMORY OF COMRADES & FRIENDS

REVOLUTIONARY RESPECTS


by Fred Hampton Jr.

To the outgunned, the outnumbered and sometimes out manned,
To the freedom fighters who fought hard and played their part in the fight for the land,
War wounds and battle scars, discarded dreams and broken hearts,
Countless casualties and millions to be mourned,
Fallen comrades, captured soldiers and prisoners of war,
Cats who havenít been compromised and those who have lost their lives.
Those who chose to die first rather than go to the other side,
The emotionally effected, those forgotten and neglected,
Men and women we didnít defend because so-called society rejected,
The ones they slandered and also hated,
The imprisoned, the tortured and the isolated,
The visionaries, the dreamers, the fighters and speakers,
The resistors, the rides (sic), the rank and file and leaders.
Weíve incurred many losses in a number of ways,
Let the record reflect revolutionary respect for the price that you paid.
