The general public throngs to know
where he got the means, what makes him go.

not competent to make a plea.

Conspiracy, fluke, or natural bent

the tedious old
non compos mentis.

Doublespeak! Sir! Rumors that this cipher
was CIA mole, or corporate gopher.
We ourselves regret the bureaucratic rhyme.
We'll have, ah, no more comments--at this time.
