MORE TO SAY
The Edward R Murrow Moment

I’ve waited
I thought it would be
Paul O’Neil
or Richard Clark
Joe Wilson
The Downing Street Minutes
Galloway was heartening

All were slimed
then dismissed
No
I told my friends
One will come
and we’ll all see
the naked emperor
We’ll wake from
this trance
that’s kept us
from noticing
his bare butt

His deception
his incompetence
will be apparent
Our eyes will finally open
In this case
perhaps Edward
won’t be one
but many
one at a time
adding up
to a strong voice of sanity

We will wake
I know it will happen
