Glass Houses

from a newspaper article

Along the border, Mexicans are being Mexicans,
what makes you think

they can be any better
than their savage ancestors,

says an old white rancher,
who claims his family

has owned this land for generations.
What ancestors,

the Aztecs,the Mayans or the Spanish?
The rancher gives a quizzical look,

no dout inherited from his benevolent
Teutonic past.
