La Lucha

It’s the late 50’s or early 60’s,
Bouncing Benny Mata is trying to be

a clean wrestler in a dirty world,
back then 12 Star Wrestling

was shown live at 9:00 pm
every Wednesday night

by a San Antonio TV station,
in black and white, of course,

don’t remember if Benny won that night
or not,

body slammed to the mat
by a six something white guy,

Bouncing Benny Mata gets back on
his feet like a Mexican jumping bean.
