Not the 'T'-word

By Raymond Humphreys (from Issue 12)

         It's not 'T', it's 'enhanced questioning'.
       'Water-boarding' is something
       they'd have to pay for at the funfair.
       They say we soak them in icy water,
       and make them stand naked in cells.
       But do they tell you how hot it is there?

       We only remove toenails
       in the interests of hygiene,
       as part of a pedicure.
       Kidnapping, drugging and blindfolding
       are not often part of our game.

       And when we do some feature reassignment
       or limb realignment
       we're just keeping the free world safe
       for Western Values and democracy.
