Lest We Forget To Offer Thanks, 2

[after 1 Peter 3:8]

Once more, the rightsers have been proven wrong:

four years of trumpeting was proved---too long!

This country---gleaming, irridescent city---

will seek compassion, courtesy and pity,

as he who was Christ's chief Apostle wrote;

so that misfortune will not meet a gloat,

but, rather, be repaired by decency

that rises from a humane empathy.

The art of knowing how another feels

will trounce incumbent arts of making deals

At Euchre,  I will not now shudder, hard,

when slamming down the Right Bauer as trump card.
