"Thanks to the grandiosity and naïveté of W., Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and Paul Wolfowitz — another Jeb foreign policy adviser — U.S. Middle East policy is so muddled that, after occupying and blowing up Iraq, we are working with Shiite Iran to push back Sunni insurgents in Iraq and working with Sunnis and their Saudi Arabian allies in Yemen against a Shiite militia that has Iranian support."

Each time the delivery trucks

Hit and knock partly over the


Stone cairn I built at the top of

Our dirt drive, each time, I re-


Build the cairn, stone by stone,

And each time the impatient


Drivers hit it and each time I

Rebuild it, until I'm getting good
