Killer Résumé

by Nora Jay

“FBI arrests guardsman who applied for job on RentAHitman.com …
Garcia told agents after his arrest that he had not intended to go through with the contract killing.
He said he just received a job offer at a Nashville medical center that he intended to take instead.”
The Guardian

I’m thinking what my best career would be:
A murderer, or just a plain MD?
Information I’m amassin’:
Nurse assistant, mass assassin?
To grab a latex glove or Glock Gen 3?

In either case, my work is clean and plain;
I’ve never yet been called a scatterbrain;
My vascular incisions
Will require no revisions:
I guarantee that no one will complain.
