Dogs Are Shakespearean, Children Are
Strangers In A Strange Land

Meanwhile, back on earth
Speedy Gonzales ran for his life,

the Sheriff was pissed
that one dirty Mexican was still at large,

and roaming Arizona freely
which by God-given right

belonged to white people only.
But Speedy, true his name,

was impossible to catch,
making fools of Arpaio’s ghouls,

running circles around them
while shouting,

“Arriba! Arriba!”
pointing to Pepe

up on the lunatic moon.
“Arriba! Arriba!”

Speedy Gonzales.
