Crossing The Red

El ocho patas was crossing
the Red Sí

when it crashed down
upon his head

as luck would have it
it didn’t hurt

his hard cabeza
but everybody

either sank
or swam like rats

while el pinche pharaoh
hung back with his posse

cursed Moses
and thumbed his nose

at what prose
he knew would be written

meanwhile el ocho patas
propelled by his marvelous eight feet

made it to shore
and lived better than mejor
