Book 14 Page 16

 

Stretching the bounds of logic

 

Guns arenít dangerous,

itís only the people who shoot them off .

 

Falling isnít dangerous,

itís only when you come to a sudden stop.

 

Nuclear weapons arenít dangerous,

accept for the Ďoddí incident.

 

Speed doesnít kill,

itís only when you have an accident.

 

Drug abuse is safe,

accept for when it kills you.

 

Unhealthy logic isnít dangerous,

Or is it?
