Not Just Names

there is a history
that happened just yesterday
that no one
knows anything
about
These are not just names
Ciudad Juarez
is for Juarez,
the man
Cinco de Mayo
is for the victory
on May 6th
1862
Mexicans had over the
French…
Even Napoleon III
couldn’t
handle it
New Mexico,
California,
and Texas…
these were places
drawn much larger
unknown
to non-Spaniard gringos
before the
1800s.
these were settled by
tejanos
mestizos
mulatos
criollos too
Only starting with
13 colonies in the east
was not a coincidence
your territories
out there
were stolen
by
none other
than
the
US
and now
you want
the ‘immigrants’
you kicked off
their land
a little more
than 100
years ago
to leave again?
America
you’re out
of
line
