Rush to Judgement (a poem)
My knee jerked faster than anyone's did
When I first contemplated what dangers hid
In the possibility that the UAE
Would get a foothold in ports that we
Must hold secure from a terrorist threat,
But as I step back, I think I regret
My thoughtless judgment, my hasty conclusion.
I may have been under a faulty illusion.
Schumer and Clinton and even DeLay
Are not the beginning and end of my day.
I'll listen to what others have to say
And make up my mind in a rational way.
Whom do I trust? What might I have missed?
Bush, Franks and Rumsfeld are high on my list
Of those I admire, from whom seek advice,
And then there are Cheney and Condi Rice.
I don't have an answer, but guided I'll be
By careful analysis, and then we'll see.
