A Savage Communique

July 25, 2014


(A poem from the series: “Herniated History”)

An early prototype mobile phone used in late
1938 by Dr. Clark Savage Jr. to communicate
with President Franklin D. Roosevelt

The conversation was made
from Paris, France, near the top
of the famed Eifel Tower

The call was made to alert the
American President to the
recent demise of John Sunlight

The madman was stopped in time
to thwart his plans for world domination
and the destruction of countless lives

Lieutenant Colonel Andrew Blodgett Mayfair
would return to the states immediately
to give a personal account of the President

The man of bronze would remain to chase
down a lead he’d recently learned about
the possible theft of the Mona Lisa

Savage had reason to believe that the theft
was being orchestrated by none other
than the current Chancellor of Germany

There was no way to be certain yet but
he surmised that it could be part of a horrifying
plot to plunge the world into global conflict

Editor’s note: While the famed adventurer and righter of wrongs was successful in foiling Adolph Hitler’s attempt to steal the Mona Lisa, his efforts only resulted in postponing the start of World War II.
