Been mulling a long mull 'bout Mr. Tim Cook,
Wondering if he should give cops a quick look
At an iPhone refusing to give up its dead,
In a weird e-seance co-chaired by a Fed.
Our dear FBI may well have a point,
When they aver that this phone could anoint,
Some mid-level flunky or cool Qaeda club,
Where longbeards make cocktails and terror hubbub.
But watching the Bureau weep and gnash teeth,
I wonder if there's just not something beneath
Their interest in the phone of this low-level joe
Who where the nukes are ain't likely to know.
