Navy Veteran, Security Guard and Machinist
I Was Born In Peru
With a mom and dad, four siblings,
and I the youngest one.
Near the mountainside.
Without any books in a big classroom, either graduate
After high school, joined the Navy.
Then found work with machinery,
but hardly got paid enough to survive.
