The Cardenas Brothers

God must know
that when the Cardenas brothers

are no more,
that he will pay dearly

for such an atrocity,
because who will poke fun

of the weaknesses
of relatives,

their friends, their acquaintances,
who will poke fun

of the frail,
the infirm, the invalids

it is with great humor
(mean humor, of course)

that they lived
their lives to the max

but they sure
had their

hearts of gold—
even if it was just fool’s gold

“God brought it on himself!”
the Cardenas brothers will say,

wherever the hell

they may be
