El padre of
La Villa de
Albuquerque

Padre Gallegos
was he
was he

~

~

Jesusita
mucha bonita
widowed & free

House-keeper
of Padre Gallegos
was she was she

~

~

Together they lived
in thee adobe
labyrinthine rectory

And together
they lived happy
& comfortably

~

~

Isolated &
surrounded by
wild hostility

Was the humble
a-crumble New Mexico
community

For
hundreds
of years

There were
only
folk cures

When Jesusita
took a
spoonful of one

She become beautiful
forever like the
rising & setting sun

~

~

She never cried
she never died
now she do abide

In the world of
today ~ el diablo’s
delectable bride

Padre Gallegos
like everyone else
sooner or later died

Padre Gallegos though
his soul wouldn’t go
to el grande other side

~

~

Now
he’s
a ghost

Still
serving
The Host

But most
of all
he haunts the trail

Of the eternal beauty
whom he loves
Jesusita his holy grail

About Rawclyde!

I have employed a few pen names throughout the years. Rawclyde with an exclamation mark (!) is the one too sticky to go away...
