It seems his treatment got a little rough.
Do what you like with him, their orders said,
Since the worst you can do’s not bad enough,
But don’t forget: more use alive than dead.

And so his minders did the usual stuff,
Took their complete immunity as read,
Then made the most of this great chance to duff
Him up now that they’d got the go-ahead.

The problem was, the guy turned out so tough
And torture-proof that their lot just saw red,
Ignored all that don’t-kill-the-bastard guff,
And looked dead set on wasting him instead.
