    Dear John,
    This is the first time when I tried to read contemporary English poem. I am a Russian who live in USA 24 years, and I am 71, and I write some poem too. My Russian friend translated some of your poems, I liked them so I decided to read in English.
    I love this poem. You are right in your last lines. In a two years I and my wife will have 50 anniversary of our marriage. It is an answer on your poem.
    Best wishes Mikhail Sonkin

Best Poem of John F. McCullagh

Who Will Watch The Watchers?

They monitor the internet.
They listen in on calls.
They spy on foreign Heads of State-
Believe me that takes balls
Their surveillance apparatus
Makes the KGB look LAX.
Omniscience is their stated aim
to "protect" us from attacks.
So put up with whole body scans
And show your papers please.
I believe the cure for terror
Will prove worse than the disease.
