Taking a stand is what Mr Cardinal atop my White Pine does:
pronouncing right on time what he’s for & what he’s not
(for the Mrs & against interlopers); more timely
than the media consultants belatedly pushing off from the sidelines
to explain the direness of Donald, joining Cokie Roberts,
who, like the Cardinal, wants to be able to stand proud
when the kids ask
what did you do to stop Hit-, er, Trump.
Taking a stand.
