Chicano Poet

Gregorio Sanchez was like any other poor barrio kid. Except that he was born with eight feet. 
And of course the other barrio kids called him El Ocho Patas.

The Musical Fruit

When el ocho patas
split the atom

the bean
came falling out

the caldo
was quite hot

there were
no silly

or strange quarks
like scientists

will lead you
to believe

only beans
make up the atom

let no one
tell you otherwise
