Whenever I see those words "final report,"

I find my credulity coming up short.

"Report" is neutral and gives me no prob'.

It's more that "final" that stinks of a snob.

It has such force, like a cop's cheap sneer:

"Move along, folks, nothin' to see here,"

Slamming the door on further inquires,

Which makes you wonder what truth requires.


The Commish 9-11 put out a Final:

500 pages of truth made of vinyl.

Its dealing with issues was less than skin-deep,

But sounded authentic and put folks to sleep.
