Perspectives 211/365

Marcello Martinez (ESL Student)

All of this commotion
Over something as simple as play.
I wish I could go out and kick a ball,
I wish I could learn an instrument,
Instead, I get to worry about immigration.

Still, we do our part
Helping the gringos in their quest
To make important what really isn’t.
Some understand our situation,
Others, “no entiendo”

So, we are stalling in school
By speaking Spanish and
Acting like we don’t understand English.
By adopting this role,
Hopefully, someone will help us
