I saw the real headline “Houthi video fails to prove claims
of Captured Saudis”, or something like that, anyway.
Five hundred sons outta the Kingdom of Saud got their
eyes crossed out to Harlem Globetrotter jukes and mom
and dad and uncle who’s-it spend the funeral on iMessage,
bargaining with a prolly better father and better typist on
what things people may believe. You can lie about numbers,
Or what’s impossible, or how flies the quartz splintered into
off-compass shapes over Noon and Mars and Langley.
But Big Axioms don’t move. They’ll swallow tremors.
The mean and cruel and stupid and ugly and the brave.
