The Raygun

(Me entiendes, Mendez?)

One day abuela got careless and left her raygun lying around
and I blasted my cousin Mandy Mendez to smithereens.

Well, not really, she did recover,
but her eyes were never brown again,

and that spiky hair, well, it’s natural now.
Oh, she forgave me,

but I don’t think abuela ever did.
One thing for sure, she never left that raygun

lying around anymore.
Of course,I think the scar I carry with me

is bigger and more noticeable than Mandy’s,
at least out here in outer space.
