News Brief: SS Administer announces bullet gifts to seniors.

[Senior Center crowd settles in for a news brief from their SS Administer.]

SS Administer: Good morning. Thank you for coming down to your senior center. Now before I pass out your bullets you have been waiting for, let me explain the situation. We at the Social Security Administration value you as our customers. We know that in order for you to help our feeble economy, you must keep shopping... In closing... These bullets are a token of our appreciation for your loyalty. Ado. [Pass out boxes of hollow bullets to seniors.]


Fare thee well! and if for ever,
Still for ever, fare thee well:
Even though unforgiving, never
'Gainst thee shall my heart rebel. ...

Fare thee well! thus disunited,
Torn from every nearer tie.
Seared in heart, and lone, and blighted,
More than this I scarce can die.
