THE CASE OF THE SCARLET HARLOT
The suspect's clever, Cupid's Bow
has launched a thousand quips.
Her leaded-ruby painted arch
has kissed a thousand lips.
The men and boys are eager for
Her kisses cause them shivers.
But her delight is breaking hearts—
And men with failing livers.
Gerald So reads "The Case of The Scarlet Harlot":
Tonia confesses: "Like GMO's and fluoride, mercury fillings, etc., I was chagrined to discover yet another toxin we are being bombarded with. I am trying to illustrate that, indeed, cumulative effects are harmful. And in this 'criminal case,' the major perp is, of course, the FDA—not poor, psychotic Scarlet."
