A history lesson

“He did what? Dial Gerry,” said General Eisenhower, “thank you.”

“You remember, when Patton took a leak?”

“Oh. Oh, no.” Said MacArthur.

“Yeah,” said his contemporary, “shucks well.”

“This is bad for my career!”

“Is there anything you can do? Dwight!”

“No. Why? This is excellent. I decided.”

Sunglasses nod.

The two tankers, the tied up third man, not a tank commander, solo supplement heard what they saw, and never heard from again, thought of eclastic engineers. Making best speed for those punks, closetbreaking flags of our fathers, on behalf of daddy, raced tracks across DMZ.

Tits out suicide tank while Red hitched to the left of a tread, thrown under and over again, thought of doorways. Hands the size of tomcap.

Doorways. Consequences. Dams.
