Chicano Poet

Aboard the S.S. Cesar Chavez,
Lupito busied himself with work.

After he had talked
to Chela and the kids,

Lupito and the other workers
continued harvesting

the rings of Saturn.
After a year

of harvesting the rings,
there were only two rings left.

In six months,
the work would be done,

and they would move on
to the rings of Neptune.

It was a dirty job,
but someone had to do it.
