This little Limerick actually belongs over on the “Best Tweets” page because Twitter is where I first posted it. On second thought , though , it was just too cute to put in a bucket of hundreds of Tweets where it’s lovely cadences might seldom be appreciated. Incidentally , General Keith Alexander is the current Director of the National Security Agency … which I suppose makes him the ranking “Spy Cop” of the present day . Hopefully that’s a temporary condition.
With no further ado or apology, here is my latest contribution to the lyrical heritage of our Brave New World Order :
A Spy Cop named K. Alexander
Thought that e-Mails were ALL worth a gander
Imagine his dread
When each missive he read
Just belittled his “thing” with great candor
