Keep me out of this one

keep-me-out-of-this-one

the lone yellow pebble bore witness
to the abduction that took place at midnight.

The man was bound and gagged and led away as
women wept.

Keep me out of this one.

Did you know that a bear needs twenty-seven,
Square miles of forest, to live?

Keep me out of this one.

The woman cut the balls off the man who raped her.
Keep me out of this one.
