Lines on the Resignation of Director Petraeus


I always thought
Your name sounded Latin
But it turns out your Daddy was Dutch,
Where the people have fair hair and ruddy cheeks,
Which gave you one of your many names,

You took him at his word
When he said ‘Results, boy, results!’
That took you from West Point to the ends of the earth
From the Hudson river to the hotbeds of terrorism
Thence to the hotbeds of intrigue
With a PhD and medals in between.
