Super Hero Alliance Patrol Ensemble 14
The Dragon sighed deeply as he took the stand,
Wondering what cards were in the prosecutor’s hand.
The prosecutor swaggered and then stared deep-
Into Fu’s eyes, and nearly made him weep.
Prosecutor: “Someone tells me you’ve got a tip-
On Stan’s dirty laundry around this campus.”
Fu: “I do not know that of which you speak.
Stan is upstanding, and heroic, and unique!”
Prosecutor: “Nothing, Fu?
Not a smelly set of socks?
Not a pair of underwear?
Or grody old smock?”
Fu looked confused.
He meant laundry literally?
He grew slowly agitated,
And sort of wiggly.
Fu: “I do not see-“
Prosecutor: “Please answer quick!
What obscene little horrors
Have made you feel sick?”
Fu began to cough and splutter
As smells and disgust-ghosts
Brought his mind to the gutter.
But while the Dragon suffered PTSD,
Dana was staring at Stan flirtatiously.
She got his attention and whispered close-
Not wanting to distract anyone from their post.
Dana: “I had no clue before today,
How you had saved Hot Chick,
You risked your life
And thought super-quick.”
Stan: “Well you’re pretty impressive too,
With your 1 day Law degree.
I know that’s from the internet-
But it sure impressed me!”
If her uncle had seen this flirtatious moment-
He would likely have overreacted.
But instead he was listening to the laundry-drama,
All his senses were enacted.
The Dragon said something incredibly gross
About beard hair around the sink-
And made the whole courtroom shudder with the image
And made them want to think different thinks!
Judge: “I know that none of us are hungry now.
But it is our designated lunch time.
I wish, Dana you would have objected.
That questioning was somewhat out of line.
Well anyway, we’ll meet back here-
In an hour or so to see-
What else we have to go through,
To finish this case thoroughly.”
Judge Hemmingway brought his gavel down
And everyone departed,
But Dana was riding on high on her crush-
Feeling woozy and warmhearted.
