So farewell Ann Richards...

Brave lady.
More balls than most Dems.
Better lines.
And the best delivery.

You nailed the first Bush for what he was
And paid the price.
You became the FIRST victim
Of George W. Bush and Karl Rove

An honorable list that grew
To include Max Cleland and so many more
Thousands of Americans dead and wounded
Millions of Americans hurting...

We owe you for your spirit and guts.
Let our memorial to you be
Our dedication to the fight
To ensure that there are fewer and fewer victims
Till this wretched scourge is over....
