Forget Darwin

With all the pedagogical hubbub over Darwin, someone forgot that what the world needs is better poetry. Forturnately, Pakistan is on the case:
Patient and steady with all he must bear,
Ready to meet every challenge with care,
Easy in manner, yet solid as steel,
Strong in his faith, refreshingly real.
Isn't afraid to propose what is bold,
Doesn't conform to the usual mould,
Eyes that have foresight, for hindsight won't do,
Never backs down when he sees what is true,
Tells it all straight, and means it all too.
Going forward and knowing he's right,
Even when doubted for why he would fight,
Over and over he makes his case clear,
Reaching to touch the ones who won't hear.
Growing in strength he won't be unnerved,
Ever assuring he'll stand by his word.
Wanting the world to join his firm stand,
Bracing for war, but praying for peace,
Using his power so evil will cease,
So much a leader and worthy of trust,
Here stands a man who will do what he must.
I hope that this time next year, this masterwork will have replaced all that crud about, you know, "Stopping by woods on a snowy evening." Most of the world's people doesn't even live in snowy climates. I think The Leader is much more universal.


The Mutiny found the missing  end of the poem last week. Of course you might not want to trust an Indian-MP-bribing British Investment Firm masquerading as a blog headquartered in North Dakota.
