Stifled Cynic

A face like a mangled fetus stares
Back at me from a magazine clipping.
I know neither who nor what told
Me I should read at all. But in
The end, I’m only looking at the
Pictures, like every guy does. The
Caption beneath the abortion face
Reads, “Nathan Hollsen suffered third
Degree burns from a carbombing
In a major Baghdad street. He is from
Atlanta. ’Can’t wait to get back
Home to the states, to get me a big
Strawberry shake,’ said Hollsen.”
That sounds good; it’s pretty hot.
Maybe I’ll buy two, in case ol’ Nate
Shows up. You know how those folk can
Be. But then again, I’ll be late for
Work. These damn Nazis at the office
Never let you stay a long lunch
Break. Terrorists? I’ve seen ’em all.
