Arizona Autopsy

The autopsy on La Llorona's children
proved that they had indeed drowned accidentally

so now it's become rocket science
every detail of one's death

has to be proved
to the satisfaction

of the district attorney
who's out to convict

Mexicans for anything
and becomes morose

when he can't get a conviction
and La Llorona walks free

proclaiming her innocence along the arroyo
the governor fumes

and the D. A. pouts
kicks his desk like a spoiled child---

just don't understand.
