College Student Put A Stick Of Dynamite In His Luggage On A Flight From Argentina To Houston

by Tony Peyser

He claimed it was just a "souvenir"
My wife's friend Christina said that's
The kind of term many years ago
That meant serapes and silly hats.

Would Howard MacFarland Fish have
Gotten bail and gone home to mamma
If his skin color had been dark brown
And his first name had been Osama?
