Use It - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

'Now you listen to me!
We've had his telephone
'Bugged' for months.
And twice he told a co-conspirator,
The gas he passes is strong enough
To wipe out an entire city block! '

But sir...
He was referring to his bowels movements!
He was in the bathroom.
He was joking!

'I don't care...
We've got to get this heat off of us!
Use it dammit!
I don't care how that is made public.
I tell you they are terrorists.
It's a plot I tell you.
It is obviously a code of some kind.
We've got to get the people crazed in fear.
Nothing else is working!
I say use it.
Contact CNN immediately.
Just leave out the part of him desiring softer tissue! '

Will do!
