Living In A Taco Bell Hell

Henry stole the vernacular of the Negro
because he could not foresee that Spanish
would be the sought-after language

even as far north as Minnesota
while Mr. Bones of barbecue
remains addicted to Taco Bell

( : the white man’s Mexican food : )
which don’t taste like it should.
The authentic enchiluders belong to raulsalinas,

ain’t no mincing words in the mincemeat---
it don’t mean a thing
if it ain’t got dem beans.
