The Greasy Spoon

Back in the Fifties
a greasy burger joint
posted a sign saying
Mexicans served around the back
Negroes go on down the road
to Emma's Place
but at least they had the courtesy
to tell you where to go
and abuelo pulled the perro
out of the stationwagon
and let him do his business
right at the front door
to greet the gringo customers
my abuelo was such
a forgiving old man
