The News from Arlington National Cemetery

On CBS News yesterday
Katie Couric reported
that we were running out of room
for graves
in Section 61
at Arlington National Cemetery
and they were
opening section 62
for those who die in Iraq and Afghanistan.
This suggests that
Arlington is finite.
So perhaps
when we run out of room
at Arlington
this might mean
no more room
for those who
die honorably in battle
and we could all just
stop fighting.
