Coffee

More coffee

Pacing

Remembering

And looking ahead

Things are looking fine

Except for minor problems

On the minor fronts

But the Generals are not worried

And, pacing, we understand

What must be done

And put it off

By dint of research and deep thought

Because we do not have the heart

To do what must be done.

Be kind, when you remember us

We were not as we seemed.
