From the Edge of Stupidity

a poem by Hubert Wilson, USA

Security is not a given.
Everyone must be a little driven.
All require a desire.
Raise the bar higher.
Cannot conceive
How now naive!

American intelligence and security
Noticeably lacking contemporary maturity.
Down beneath dumb?

Declining to ever lower depths it has come?
Each should be embarrassed!
Verily the competence barest!
Exceptional it can - and MUST be!
Longing for America to remain free?
Operate then in a competent, cooperative and timely fashion.
Performing with passion.
Measures to the fullest to be taken.
Exploring more and leaving less forsaken.
Negate stifling bureaucracy -
The end otherwise to our democracy!

Been there, done that!
