Ay Tu,Klaatu!

When Klaatu threatened D.C. with destruction,
a Chicano was putting up barricades
to keep the gringoes at a safe distance,

a Chicano was manning the back
of a garbage truck on the capitol streets,
he was painting the monument signs,cleaning restrooms.

And if Lincoln,Jefferson and Washington
had stone asses he'd wipe them clean---
all in a day's work.

The Chicano thought to himself,
"If this alien does destroy D.C.,
I'm going to have a hell of a mess to clean!"
