Did Hitler start a global war
And form death-armies
Because he had to augur a toilet
One too many times?
Did Stalin starve millions,
Kill millions, imprison millions
Because someone ahead of him
in the ten-items-or-fewer line had eleven?
Did Pol Pot exterminate
one Cambodian in six
Because his laptop froze
That thousandth time?
– Paul De Lancey, The Comic Chef
