Most of his peers

in the Senate

had remorse

that they had not

voted for peace

with Wayne Morse.

And left his body

has Senator Gruening

but in his footprints

the world keeps greening.

(to John Thaw)

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Senator Wayne Morse
of Oregon was 1 of
2 senators who voted
against the Tonkin
Gulf Resolution, a trick
by which LBJ got
the US further involved
in war.
