how it usually plays out…

how it usually plays out

for
political reasons
there will be
no admission
of guilt
though
it was
our weapon
and
our men
who fired
the shots
as demonstrated
by
a number of world experts
but
such
assassinations
must be
handled carefully
in the press
world opinion
could turn against us
and
we’d have to admit
to
the other crimes
so
let’s just say
that we were
aware
of
such a
potential action
by
someone

  1. Charlie, I posted your “lost” poems in the October issue of “The BeZine.” I think I have one more left. So sorry that happened but so happy to find out we’re all not crazy. 🙂

  2. Back in the day when war was the pursuit of gentlemen, of course, it was possible to initiate proceedings with ” Messieurs les Anglais, tirez les premiers!” (attributed to Maurice de Saxe, at the Battle of Fontenoy, 1745).

    By coincidence, I have just speculated, on someone else’s post, whether anyone ever initiated a sport by first writing a thick rulebook.

    All of which is a propos nothing at all. I’ll get my coat…
