I was listening to an interesting discussion on the radio today, The After 8 Debate on SAFM, on the recent events in Egypt. A lot of very good points came up, but one caller made me laugh. He shouted AMERICA KEEP OUT! He confessed to being an ex-CIA-trained-and-paid mercenary sent to Angola many years ago. How the world spins.
I wrote a poem years ago about foreign aid and the kindness of the heart (har har), “Threats and Deeds.” But I can’t post it here. It is included in my new book, Alien to Any Skin.
