Bullet Points

by Alex Steelsmith

“A passenger hid bullets in a baby diaper at New York’s LaGuardia Airport.
TSA officers caught him.”

“A typical sniper would not use a diaper,
but I am ingenious,” he gloated.
“My thinking is clever; officials will never
check diapers that someone has loaded.”

However, they caught him and pointedly taught him
a lesson regarding his stash:
“When looking for camo to cover your ammo,
your choice of a diaper was rash.”
