Ode of Mexican

All the maize in the world,

Lies on these breaking backs,

Mayan civilization unfurled,

Warm skins under contract.

~

Hark work and tradition,

Rakes and racks faithfully on souls,

Respect for everyone, even todos los muertos.

~

Whipped by Spanish mission,

Beauty survived indigen cull,

Love for family, especially los hijos.
