This is Mexican Poetry
One of the words most associated with Day of the Dead is ‘Calavera’, which means skull but like many things in Mexico it has a double meaning. At this time of year, a calavera is also a humorous/satiric poem, which is an obituary or a would be obituary, making fun of the person it is written for, that explains their demise. It is quite the art form so I am very thankful that a real calavera expert wrote this one for Soy Poblana!
¡Feliz Día de Muertos!
