Summary:
"Did you see someone cold-cock a blind nun? / Well, I did. Two helpful idiots / Steered her across the tarmac to her plane / And led her smack into the wing. / She deplaned with two black eyes & a crooked wimple, / Bruised proof that the distinction is not simple / Between ineptitude and evil."

Abstract:

"Did you see someone cold-cock a blind nun? / Well, I did. Two helpful idiots / Steered her across the tarmac to her plane / And led her smack into the wing. / She deplaned with two black eyes & a crooked wimple, / Bruised proof that the distinction is not simple / Between ineptitude and evil."
