Todos Santos
Peanut Man
By Carl Lahser
San Antonio, Texas

Whooeeete!
Whooeeete!
In the dusk
Out of the gathering night
Whooeeete!

Hola!
Jola! Jola!
Cacahuetes caliente!
Cacahuetes picante!
(Peanuts hot and spicy)
Whooeeete!

Dogs howl
Children gather to follow the peanut man
Through warm dusty streets
Un centavo here
Dos centavos there
Whooeeete!

An old man
Pulls the small black steam engine
Along the dusty village streets
Whooeeete

His route ends at the town’s cantina
Where he sells most of his cacahuetes
And washes the dust from his throat
With a cerceza fresco
A nice cold beer
Ahhhh!
