Mystery Man McVeigh
by DCDave

You can't help thinking "government stooge,"
It's really the only way
To make any sense of the truly strange
Behavior of Tim McVeigh.

At that Kansas motel he used his real name,
It's quite an amazing thing,
For whoever phoned out for Chinese food
Said he was "Robert Kling."

Now wasn't that really convenient?
I can just hear the Church Lady say,
For in a few days, it's been alleged,
"Kling" would blow scores of people away.

McVeigh seems the type who can follow orders
And go where they tell him to go
And play a well-scripted "sheep-dipped" role
On the basis of "need to know."

David Martin
