Colonizado

The American transport ship Seneca, a chartered vessel that carried troops to Puerto Rico and Cuba. 
Yeah. I'm Puertorro. If you white, 
You probably don't know I'm a citizen 
Of the USA; my passport says so.

Yeah. I'm Boricua. From the big island 
Of a small Caribbean archipiélago.
Bred and born. Criau. Never left; always planning to.

Boricua. From Borikén. Which is taíno for good natured.
But I'm not. Soy un hijeputa. Forever a punk. I'm an asshole.
Better yet. Even worse: I'm a dick too big for your asshole.

Yeah. Puertorro means that we were given US citizenship
Cause bodies were needed for the World War effort.

     Me lo
     Mama.

Yeah. Puertorro means that I dream in Spanglish.
Fuck you, gringo. I never asked for English.
Thank you, gringo. I needed Shakespeare.
Fuck you, gringo. I never asked for dreams in English.

Thank you, gringo. I know of your 
Beautiful perversity thanks to Allen Ginsberg;
I know how much you rock thanks to Bobby 'Blue' Bland.

Fuck you very much for the 
116 years of Stockholm syndrome.
