Heart of Copper

by
 The Candidate, answering a question
about El Salvador, generalized
by saying he thought
we should support human rights
everywhere they were being abrogated--
South Korea, South Africa
or South Yemen.
He didn't have the moral perspicuity to mention South Dakota.
Perhaps it's too far north.
