So I’m not cracked to be thinking this Yglesias post was a poem, considering how it rendered in Google Reader. The first two lines are easy enough to improve — drop the “that” and “and energy to,” or maybe “time and … to” — but the third and fourth are a mess, but one with potential. I’d love to find a way to squeeze the bureaucratize of “official gatherings of descendants of Thomas Jefferson” into a single line, but alas, I’m doomed to failure.

So not a well-crafted poem, but a poem nonetheless. 

Only not. 

(And yes, I need new glasses.)
