Hot Air Sickness

Surely it should be the final straw,
Their discounting what countless eyewitnesses saw.
Through the years they've shoveled out many a lie,
But this is rank even for the FBI.
Do they really expect us to accept what they say
About Flight 800 of TWA,
Dismembered then shooting up making a streak?
It's a fable fit only for the mentally weak,
Or a nation that's sick with a dangerous condition,
A disease first induced by the Warren Commission.
If we can't find a cure or vaccine that will right us,
We're fated to die of acute "gullibitis."


David Martin
