WELL, WELL, WELL
Well today they called, said they're ',
watching my house', with people
around an old corsair staring in with
pirate binoculars and spyglasses on
their faces. Face it, from the harbor they
probably couldn't see a thing. So I stepped
down to them. I said, 'Excuse me, but did
you say 'corsair' but mean 'crosshairs? Only
because I want to know if you'll really shoot.'
I realized they didn't understand me. What
language then do brigands and plunderers and
pirates speak? Probably 'politics', as if that's a
language any sensible man would wish to know.
