Test Tubes

How many test tubes are their in my pocket? One of acid to throw in the face of my prosecutor because he's going to throw me in the slammer. One of radioactive spider stuff to turn me into a super-hero so I can kiss girls upside down. One of wine so I can sneak drinks into the laboratory and get drunk enough to hit the wrong switch, electrify the chemicals, and give me super belching powers. One of fake nitroglycerin, that will scare my nemesis until he learns I can't harm him, then he'll throw me in front of a truck, but I'll fly away because I'll have discovered my mutant powers. One of poetry, the genre that falls so quietly out of the container you might think no one saw it, or read it, at all.
