Quetzalcoatl's Patas

El ocho patas
often thought of himself as Quetzalcoatl

he of the few feathers
but longing of such huaraches

he tried to lead his raza
into the future

but they clung to the past
stuck in reverse

or what was worse
not moving at all

tiesos as if frozen---
so el ocho patas

shook his head que no
and flew on ahead

his feathered feet
was all his raza ever saw of him

as they sank
and stank

with only themselves
to thank
