El Malinche

When El Malinche first laid eyes upon Hernan Cortez
he knew he must find a way into his heart

when his charms were not enough
he promised the Conquistador anything

anything My Lord
El Malinche cried out into the night

while the Conquistador’s army slept
El Malinche pleased Cortez

and Cortez relished the long nights
of Spanish sin

when the nation fell
El Malinche remained pure
