Growing Up Chamaco

A boy and his rusty beans
that would be Chamaco

poor as a serf
in the Middle Ages

twelve year old Aztec boy
playing in the swamp

19fifties walking to school
like a fool

looking for love
he found hate

brown as he could be
he could never be otherwise

a true blemish
upon earth
