John Doe II
by DCDave

They painted a vivid portrait
Of John Doe Number Two.
They did a far, far better job
Than you or I might do.

Could you recall so perfectly
A man you'd barely met,
Whose face there was no reason why
You shouldn't just forget?

A stranger thing in that fair state
I think there never was
Since Dorothy rode on a storm
Back from the Land of Oz.

For now they say, "Oh, never mind,"
He wasn't with McVeigh.
John Doe II was just some guy
They saw some other day.

David Martin
