THE BUZZARD’S CAGE a drive by poem by Flyrod

Listen my friends to this good advice
When in Tijuana you better think twice

Just south of the border from San Diego
Lives the mean Federale named Jose Del Fuego

Like a buzzard that circles the desert sky
He cruises the streets with a hungry eye

For tourists who wander the Mexican streets
Those college students and other deadbeats

His kind of justice is done on the spot
You better have cash and I mean a lot

He’ll lay down the law to which he prescribes
In simple English it means he takes bribes

He taps his baton on his open hand
Don’t be a jackass, obey his command

You mouthed off good and triggered his rage
Now you’re gonna ride in his big yellow cage

With spiders and scorpions everywhere
This is a time you’re gonna’ need prayer

He fires up the engine and heads for the jail
You’re drunk as a skunk and you look mighty pale

With a seven-point badge and a black shotgun
That old Federale is having his fun

You’re acting stupid and call him a pig
He grabs for his bottle and takes a big swig

He grins real wide and his gold tooth flashes
He misses the curb and the old rig crashes

He’s out like a light and the cage springs open
This was the break for which you were hopin’

There‘s a knot on your head and you’re beat to hell
Through the darkness you stagger to find your hotel

You wake up at noon the following morning
All covered with puke, let this be a warning

From yellow tequila you’ll get a delusion
“It was just a bad dream”, that’s your conclusion
