Mr.Bones Impersonates Lalo Delgado

Stupid Chicano,
see that America
with its big army

in its nuclear hands,
it doesn’t want to help you,
it wants to carve you up

in God’s name,
and you let it.
Stupid Chicano,

hear America
shout curses at
people of color.

You try to write
but they take away
your pencil and paper

and since
you can’t write
you explode in Iraq.

Stupid Chicano,
remember him flunking math
and English,

he was a Picasso
and he helped America
paint Guernica in Fallujah,

and he has died.
A thousand masterpieces
of dead children hang in his mind.
