an excerpt from & Now niños:
MS Codex Mojaodicus: legit copy / Paper ink draft /
that Great Amurkan Prophet / Patriot

O Sr Citizen Henry w/ Borders
—Operator Gatekeeper himself—
our gendered Amurkan Citizen
from güey on Right
not waiting one Minute(man)
for questions abt all them “beaners”

bringing in lice & vermin / & venereal diseases
from that land o’ tortillas
& to grease OUR lovely Amurka
w/ fatty carnitas & slimey cornhusked meatcakes . . .
invading Our Amurka
them goddamned animals
livin in trailers / 65-70 aliens
in eversingle one . . .
