The Assassination of Bob

 Bob felt more confused than alarmed
When his head began to swell
And stretch, like rubber, into a perfect sphere.
How was it happening?
Why?
Could it have been that bicycle pump he'd eaten for breakfast,
Or the helium canisters for lunch?
 
It certainly was an odd sensation.
He didn't feel uncomfrotable so much as, well,
light-headed.
 
He never even saw the pin taped to the ceiling.
