Stopping By Taliban in a Desertion
—Bowe Bergdahl, with apologies to Robert Frost and “Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening”

Whose huts these are I think I know
I’ll stop and try out my Pashto
Perhaps I’ll linger for some years
Rather than back to my base go

My military buddies near
Will wonder why I don’t appear
And question if by some mistake
My wanderings have led me here.

My father has another take
Thinks that democracy’s a fake
And that all of our Western feats
Are an historical mistake

Gitmo terrorists are released
And my father removes his tweets
Obama leads us to defeat
Obama leads us to defeat

Very nicely done! Political commentary in the form of a poem is so much more interesting than the straight delivery. More, more! I think this story will be around for awhile so there will be time for an encore.

Good to ssee you, too, buzz!

My little*, snot-nosed package studied Frost last semester and told me that he thought "dudes" such as Frost and Emerson were okay.

Big hug for him.

*He's not little any more. He wears a size 13 shoe. Well, he did 10 weeks ago.
