Poetry Friday

Lord, where did the day go? I didn’t have time for a properly poetical post, but thankfully Rod Blagojevich is here to help me.

He ended the news conference by quoting a poem from [sic] "Ulysses" by Lord Alfred Tennyson, ending with: "To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield."

First Kipling, now this. I think he may be giving occasional poetry a bad name. Maybe they can add that to the charges against him.

I'd heard the Blagojevich Kipling quoting, but missed the Tennyson. Gracious. Let's hope the next news conference isn't on a Friday.

Amen to that!
