Muffin Man returns from Iraq



{ Podcast this essay } Do not rob the muffin man. Nor taunt the man. Nor trash the man. Do not dis’ the muffin man; for, killing is his game. On Mondays he does shotshells; on Tuesdays, just the same. On Wednesdays he likes rimfires, and on Thursdays foreign grenades. On Fridays slugs and projectiles, on weekends it’s flares at planes. The muffin man he knows the ways of IEDs and pain. Of fuse and cords, and switching circuits, to him it’s all the same. And colorful accessories plant explosives in the lanes. Can boobytraps ( mine fuzes too), and tripflares keep him sane? So do not rob the muffin Man. Nor taunt the man. Nor trash the man. Do not dis’ the muffin man; for, killing is his game.
