This Is Your Captain Speaking

This is your captain speaking
said el ocho patas

though of course
he really wasn't

as the plane lifted
from Papalote

full of helotes
into the crispy cereal sky

of two-timing Texas
and el ocho

kept pretending
to be the captain

Ladies and Gentlemen
if you look out

the right side
of the plane

those hills there
that's where

in just about a minute
we will  crash
