What Would Wellstone Do

At dinner one night in Washington
Two politicians were perusing the menu,

Knowing his friend was not seeking
Re-election, he idly asked "what board
Of director-ships are you considering"
The veteran congressman replied...

"The pork is delicious!"

I think Wellstone would
Have agreed what
What my Dad would always say...

"Many are called, but few are chosen"
