bailar

Explosive bailando Curves and smiles Killing the hearts of the naive Enticing embraces entwined Mexican graces Acambaroooooooooooooo Vive los mortes Vive los suenos Vive los ninos Did they die in peace Or for a good cause Do the drug lords have a higher god Or do tears fall like rain on us all Soy payaso Estoy triste y perdida She left for greener lands Children left buried in taco sand Que lindo etsa la vida Qué triste Porque bailo sola En el tequila de mis sueños Hold me tight, for this last dance, of life

Like Tom said...contradictory images...life, death, joy, sadness, gain and loss. Clever mix of languages, and appropriate ending. ~ Regards // paul
