Musky Flexing

by Chris O’Carroll

“I hereby challenge Vladimir Putin to single combat.
Stakes are Ukraine.”
Elon Musk

Musk sees the future—auto-driving cars,
Spaceships, a human settlement on Mars,
And one thing more. En route to conquer space,
He’s set his sights on breaking Putin’s face.
Is this the hip new righteous rich boy thing?
Will Gates or Bezos punch out Xi Jinping?
Will Kim Jong-un be told he’s going down
As soon as Richard Branson gets to town?
