Monitoring

“People think we are lazy and we cannot shoulder hard work,

Nor long, cold hours starring at a moving screen.

Clearly they have never planned a coup.

 

I have been sitting by this house for days,

Trying to establish a pattern, a routine of some kind,

But there is nothing predictable about these guys.

 

I feel like I am wasting my time.

This short will never happen. We are lacking data,

And manpower to make sure it is safe.

 

There is always a risk. The key is to minimize it.

The best guys in the business –

Hell, the best in history – are born planners.”
