La Mejicana

I’ve got donkey brains according to her.
She claimed to have corralled
Mexican Independence won.

I told her, you’re joking right?
But, she was serious.
Babe, you people

will never build great pyramids again
The anger in her face spewed Popo.
She said, you ain’t getting none

and I thought to myself
run, run for your single life.
I wasn’t the sharpest knife.

Ah, hell, I told my mejicana,
I’ll go with you to the diez y seis celebration.
She called me Carranza

but I was ok with it.
I was ok with anything
in her fiery, fighting eyes.
