Spies Like Us - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

Well, spies like us who would have thought!
That, lacking training as we do
(I know, you're right) both of us ought
to have attended Langley's Zoo.

Yet, neither MI-six nor those
pretendo Yanks of CIA,
have ever even gotten close
(they would have seen her décolleté) ,

I'll cut this short, the coast is clear
no further clues are here revealed.
No matter how acute your ear,
my lips are, for good reason sealed.
