There has been a crash of a plane filled
with missing blonde teenagers,
all daughters of trustees of too-big-to-fail banks.
People take to the streets of Damascus
with green lasers and train them on targets
as far away as tornado-flattened Oklahoma City suburbs.
The last married celebrities divorce
and remarry to the last holders
of defaulted student loans.
Ron Howard plans a film
based on the DSM-5.
An investigation is conducted
by a panel of federal whistleblowers
recovering from mysterious flu-like illnesses.
Their final ruling is pilot error.
