Dead Ant

Hormiga always liked big girls (he married one)
us cabrones would make fun of him

he didn’t care
nothing really bothered him

we made fun of him
because he was smarter than us

got Bs while we got Fs
stayed out of trouble

while we were meant for it
he was a real mellow guy

raised a family
raised his grandkids

so it’s hard to believe
that just this morning

Hormiga shot his wife
and put the gun to his own head

for the life of me
I can’t remember how he got that nickname
