What have you done
with my hat chingόn

que mierda this bust
they trot out to restore

the populace reassurance
no peasants no indigenous

that it’s all in the past
antique a campaign

ha those days are these
their angels use wires

they concentrate their inner
wealth circles compounding

interest they may follow
a scorched earth policy

we will not be led we will
not be display you can head

in the plaza exhaust
your tenure will choke

your land seized not wrought
iron by open arms
