A New Breed Of Vendidos

for Professor Ralph Grajeda (whereever he is)

Pancho Villa crossed the border
with a candlestick, said Professor Grajeda.

He should know, otherwise, why would he teach
Texas history to dolts?

He’s quirky and drinks Coca Cola
while he lectures on account…

On account of what, questions the pretty gringa?
In my mind, she’s pregnant with all of my kids at once.

Being a fourth generation Texas-Mexican,
I despise history, see no need for it.

Ah, the rocket ship which will take us cross-country
has finally arrived.

The professor is never wrong,
and scares the uppity wannabe Chicanos much.
