Road Trip Never Made






I went to cuba looking for minoso



but found che instead



i jumped into his prefect



for miles and miles we drove



searching for adventure not minnie



we talked about marti and poetry



baseball argentina and fidel



we stopped at the stadium in holguin



looking for the girl with the pearl earing



on the road again another story



he said when the first shot was heard



cuba woke up startled out of sleep



bringing land reform justice and bread



smoking cigars and drinking rum



the trip seemed boring now



until we reached santiago de cuba



driving up to the pink house



with minoso standing at the door



smiling

It sounds as though it was pretty exciting to me. I've never visited that part of the world.
