The patsy

Where were you on the day
you killed John F. Kennedy?
— On the way to Amarillo
with my banjo on my knee.

Where were you on 9/11
when you piloted the plane?
— On the last train to Clarksville,
singin’ in the rain.

Where were you when you launched
the tsunami on Japan?
— Being framed for Mt Vesuvius
and the Fall of Man.

Does your mother know her only son
is a heartless bugaboo?
— I’m sure she knows it perfectly,
and all my brothers too.
