Jesus Christ, Heaven forbid
you need to pronounce a three-syllable name
that isn’t Jessica/Samantha/Christina.
No not Fatina not Tina
It’s fine just call me Fuhteemuh.
No there’s no shorter way to say my name
no I will not answer to Fat
Haha, you’re funny!
You’re not, Mr. Joe/Bob/Rick.
No I am not Arabic that’s a language.
No I am not from Texas I’m from Miami
not somewhere old sorry to disappoint
sorry you’re wrong sorry I do not enjoy
the interrogation. Ohhhh, well,
My father is from Somalia. You know the place-
it’s where all those poor Africans can’t eat
get fat stuff their faces like you.
Enjoy your food.
