A Jasper from a government agency,
Said he knew all about exploding bombs.
So, he came out to our desert retreat,
Strutting with exaggerated skill and aplomb.
We showed him the unexploded package,
And advised that he shouldn’t stand so near,
But he sneered and paid us no nevermind.
Now, he won’t see the end of this year.
Written for the Three Things Challenge from the Haunted Wordsmith, January 30, 2019: desert, jasper, and bomb. Jasper in this case is an uneducated simpleton who thinks they know more than others.
