By DAVE FOXLos AlamosThe Man Who Spoke Through His EarsThe man who spoke through his earsHad been listening for years and years.It was discovered by his parentsWhen as a child he learned to speakThat his larynx would play backThrough his earsThe incredible leaksOf all he’d ever heardThroughout his listening,But non-speaking years.Thus, he became the official recorder of record,With no flaws at all,Of all the truths, half-truths, lies,And tales too tall.Not only the official recorder,But the official play-backer, too.For there was never any differencebetween what he had heardAnd the words his larynxPlayed flawlessly backThrough his ears,Word for word.And so those who’dHave the record read otherwiseWere plain out of a luckOr even a job,When trying to falsely report,Recharacterize, or stainThe faithful replay of the only refrainOf what’d really been said,When the man who spoke through his ears,Said what’d been said.Copyright 2020 David Fox
