    message me if more are killed
    or blasted by a mine
    or attacked by a cowherd
    I'm 24/ 7 on the mobile
    or some App
    simply message me
    I’ll review all recent deaths
    and order an inquisition
    as to:
    were they due to cow slaughter
    or a terrorist attack
    or farmers' suicides
    or plain suicide
    or rape
    just let me know
    then, the inquisition
    will send the report
    and I can message you back
    for you to forward, backward
    spread the word.
