Spies now embedded*

time there was
when US reporters many
were CIA agents
on their own
risking their lives
sleeping who knows where
and with whom
would gather information

hard work of theirs
has borne fruit for others
now US reporters
are embedded with the Pentagon
same bed same tank same ship
similar dreams similar news similar views
