The Mean Man at Dilley

Artwork from Travis Park Church Migrant Hospitality March-July 2019

The clothes they gave me are too small.

            The shoes don’t fit.

            My feet stick out the back.

When I asked the man at Dilley

            for a bigger size

He yelled at me.


The mean man at Dilley always shouts at us.

            He has a very bad attitude.

I saw him often.

            He works there.

He always yells at the families.

            The mothers and the children.

The mean man at Dilley is very bad.

            I was at Dilley for 16 days.
