Portrait Of Henry With Rod Serling

Henry said the magic word
surrounded by the usual
Tio Tacos,

Vendidos from the very start,
sell-outs to their own people.
They wanted us

to assimilate
which is not evil, of course,
but assimilate

at a lower level
not quite equal
to those at the top.

Like in that
Twilight Zone episode
where "to serve man"

meant that those aliens
were going
to eat you.

Those "aliens" are in D.C. right now.
