IN WHICH A TEST IS FLUNKED(Or did he pass?)
The colonel gave the general's aide,
With pin removed, a live grenade;
This test was one he had to pass
To prove his value to the brass.
"What shall I do," the staid aide prayed,
"To render harmless this grenade?"
For answer plain he racked his brain...
Then dropped it down a sewer drain.
The aide received (quite soon) a new
Directive with an order to
Investigate the craven plot
That blew the general off the pot.
