This is the new blog...CONFESSION ZERO



Bolton, who, for more than a year, was blocked by Democrats and several Republicans including Sen. Lincoln Chafee (news, bio, voting record), a moderate Republican who lost in the midterm elections Nov. 7 that swept Democrats to power in both houses of Congress, resigns his U.N. Ambassadorship. This is his ode.

Obdurate-fuming-man, pig-headed
against a world’s independence
have found the blade in empire
UNder the heel of freedom’s boot.

No more shall you bellow and boil
your contempt for charity and truth.
With your hooked claws now blunted,
sleep and hope you’ll disturb no more.

Your acts of ascendancy drawn,
hemorrhaging, fatigued, UNcovered,
our loosely fitted blindfold
reveals now your crafted hold.

Obdurate-fuming-man, pig-headed
against humanity’s dominion,
found now UNneeded and UNwanted
and your plans thus UNdone.

Bush accepts Bolton's U.N. resignation
