The Damsel Distress'd: (in response to "Inside KEET," June 27, from a KEET employee.)
Why this thrust of the envenom'd lance?
An uncomfortable torque of the under pants?
Would a knight of good renown
Kick a man when he is down?
When jousting in the local lists,
Some decided hits — and some he missed.
I scorn the chalice of Kool-Aid,
So heed the words of this withered maid:
We work so that others get enjoyment
From entertainment. Our employment
Harms no one — and indeed invests
In local subjects and interests.
So I implore you, please eschew
This tempest in a teacup brew'd.
If sometimes bitter, then sometimes sweet.
If 'tis trusty, 'tis worthy, and if worthy, 'tis KEET.
