    My dinner plate/grandma's back yard


    Simple greens
    Verses frozen beans

    Corn meal
    Knee- d- ed into corn bread

    Light Mango spread
    On Banana bread


    Eat your spinach like your mother said
    And charge your chard

    Paint the rainbow with your squash
    And cry like the Nile with
    Saboas


    Lentil jump around in my
    Arroz con pollo

    Tauro, Tauro, Tauro
    Ahora usteds....

    Con Orchata

    Simple greens
    Verses frozen beans

    The last of the mo-ji-cama'
    Dance the rain dance in my tang

    Pina y pina
    The ripe co-co-nut on the floor of the cute little hut

    Simple greens
    Verses frozen beans
    Don’t taste like the skillet of my grandma hands
    In her southern ways
    Too much pork fat in those days
    Caused her to sing simple
    Songs
    'Bout simple green verses
    Frozen beans

    In California....
