A Cautious Man
April 01, 2004
… and the poets just stand back and let it all be
In addition to the horrible news today, of new deaths of U.S. troops and the horrible deaths of four U.S. civilians yesterday, the Iraq Coalition Casualty Count website informs us that U.S. troop deaths in the Iraq war now total 600, including 461 since the President proclaimed "Mission Accomplished!"

"Forward, the Light Brigade!"
Was there a man dismay'd?
Not tho' the soldier knew
Someone had blunder'd:
Their's not to make reply,
Their's not to reason why,
Their's but to do and die:
Into the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.
