Olmecs Rule (rev)

olmecs rule

The news is out – down Veracruz
they found the evidence,
Olmecs had the written word
400 years before Sumerians.
A Chinese claim predates all that,
but let it rest. Examine what it
means to Mesoamericans!
Spanish thinking converts to the
English tongue, reflect a while,
your reaching back predates the
sum of everything that history
shows, heaven knows, perhaps
you taught the World to write.
You taught the World to sing and
dance, and in another guise you
formed the mortar in the blocks
propping up the sorry state, that’s
no surprise to a Chicano – and it’s
not too late to let them know.
Viva los Chicanos!
