:) Yes, Professor Cohen!
Yes, Professor Cohen I fear that you are right
And lack even in this quiet space
The courage to stand behind you as I should,
Too few our fellows knowing who Kennan was -
And the inadequacy of two paltry undergraduate semesters of Her history -
Knowing just enough to suspect how correct you are.
Noting how even Charlie danced around you
And my impression that George Ball seemed to sort of disappear
From a far less critical area of concern after the great council.
I can only say thank you for trying to alert us
To what some would call a limiting factor
And with sadness salute you that you would try
To save us from the day when we will weep.
