Conference On Homeland Security - Poem by Donal Mahoney
I can’t speak for the women
attending this conference
on Homeland Security.
They’re scholars, too,
brought here for their expertise.
Perhaps I can speak for the men
sitting in these rows with iPads
first session of the morning,
staring straight ahead at
two breasts above the podium,
two heat-seeking missiles
restrained by a suit coat
but programmed to fire
and wipe out ISIS, Al Quaida
and Boko Haram.
These men won’t duck for cover.
They are patriots forever
ready to die for the cause.
