Ah… so there’s training

by Barbara Loots

“Each year, hundreds of young people begin their careers as congressional interns. Many go on
to become leaders in business, journalism, education, politics and even Hollywood. Quite a few
will return to their communities and commit their lives to pubic [sic] service.”
—Kansas City Star

Young interns in D. C. begin
careers they’ll be pursuing
by finding out behind the scenes
what leadership is doing.

Back home they seek the headlines with
connections they can boast of.
Except it seems concupiscense
is what they learn the most of.
