Yes It Does

Metric Marsbar and Sparyline Turncoat

Reported for duty today

They stood inside the ramparts

Of Carnivorous Tower

While Z and Sgt. Shrilby looked

Them over

They said Okay

Metric emptied the garbage and lit a fire

Sparyline wrote an email

Then hacked the Pentagon

All in a day's work

What's the special tonight

Gladys?

Bourbon and corned beef hash

How perfect!

It goes so well

With keeping the world safe

N'est ce pas?

Simon Frost-Winters is in the corner

Writing an editorial

And rebuilding his car

With parts scrounged from his flashlight

Nikita Ivanavitch is smoking

In the other room

He hasn't heard

Why don't you tell him, Sparyline?

Where's the fun in that?

So much better when they learn

The hard way

It all seemed so easy

Until it was proven we

Were wrong

Might as well spend your

Spare change

And end all your thoughts

With prepositions

Give it time, give it time

Everything new is old again

Pumpkins can't house

Fieldmice

There's no tomorrow

We just safeguard yesterday

As best we can
