Colorful town-Nicaragua

Narrow streets                                                                           
very small towns                                                                              
colorful cribs (houses)                                      

beautiful people                                              
huge hearts                           
houses made out bricks                                              

Lack of sources
reader says "indeed"

Green land
blue flag 
where the earth still bleeds

Political riots
government revels
civil war - Notorious

Colored people
big dreams
ghetto fabulous 

Third world country
criminals brutality
corrupted presidents - crooks

Tiny nation
giant citizens  
blood vessels , DNA - my roots
