Pleading the Fifth

garrison

i was
nine years old
when they
killed Kennedy
even now
I’m not ready
to answer questions
about my part
in the assassination
but i will say
conspiracy is
just piracy with a prefix
and what little boy
doesn’t want to be
a pirate?
anyway
i don’t deny
it was good to get some me time
and work on my coloring
