Scott v Shepherd
A lit squib
was thrown into a crowded market
on the table of a gingerbread merchant.
A bystander, to protect himself
and the gingerbread,
threw the squib across the market
where it landed
in the goods of another merchant.
The merchant grabbed the squib
and tossed it away,
accidentally hitting Scott in the face,
putting out one of his eyes.
