5. Very moving, that.

Don't worry about the rhymes, pentameter or whatever. Your words are true.

Unfortunately for my social ambitions, my calling has been in pointing out the crimes or a certain, er, class. Prose from a Friend:

EXCERPT...

As with our response to Iraq's invasion of Kuwait, and to the overthrow of Siad Barre in Somalia, a war in Afghanistan (or new ones in Somalia and Iraq) will not be to relieve the suffering of its population or to defend against a serious threat to democratic and civil rights. In the name of terror's victims, war will be pursued to protect future profits for those making, as well as those reporting, the decisions.
