Working poem of news Number 1205

Graduates: If you read the paper most everyday

in your own time mind you can come to be  a universe master.

Something can go big and surprisingly wrong

but to you it seems logical -

because you can see the developing evidence in your daily paper looking backward.

Like God watching the Preakness

I stopped time once, watching Kuwait invasion on TV at bar,

while reading day's paper with previous day's news of possible armed buildup on border

(and night before was reading Seven Pillars of Wisdom, which begins in Kuwait.)

So I understand the Unknown Known.

To be continued
