moonlight gambler

you

 can gamble for matchsticks

you can gamble for gold

the stakes may be heavy or small

but if you haven’t gambled for

love & lost

then you haven’t gambled at all

The Living Legend Of

Jesusita & Padre Gallegos

by Cloyd Campfire

~
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…
