Show and tell for me today
is three liters worth of
refrigerated urine

The pop quiz to follow
I ace with flying colors

blabbing away
in the short essay section

in quieter times
I bubble so darkly that
the lead nearly punctures the paper

Veering away from the textbook answers
seeking dark, dusty corners
fusty smelling information

Trying to establish a suspect
no one ever discovers a motive

A ring of likely candidates
must be discovered
and exposed one-by-one

The adrenal gland has been known
to squeal loudest

but the code of silence
is my foremost challenge now.
