Witness Protection –

Disguised high-wire helper, charity store drifter.
Changed his standing gait, hardened his skin through over-pronation and an emphatic limp.
Practice, Practice, and more Practice, makes perfect stool pigeon.
Broadway not calling-in the performance, no encores under ruffled velvet curtains.
He’s been taken-in another direction, taken-along the middle white lines.
Settling down with his letters, courtesy of the Feds clever five-way salvo technique –
“Wife, Children, Pets – dead. No typo in smithereens”.
Practice, Practice, and more Practice, makes perfect stool pigeon.
Depression in Hoodlums not listed on WHO, ICD, DCM.
