The Immigrant Blues

El ocho patas
was riding the Mexican bus

across the border
returning to Texas

after failing to find
any kind of relatives

in the bowels of Mexico
for you see

el ocho's ancestors
had always lived

in Texas
or whatever

it was called
before it became Texas

poor ocho was even a failure
at being an immigrant
