    moved to Annapolis Maryland and I thought that some of my songs could fit into a musical comedy set there So I began imagining how I could put the songs I d written together so that there could be some continuity and it occurred to me that one of the most interesting things about Annapolis is the rivalry between St John s College and the US Naval Academy They are literally right across the street from each other and have a serious rivalry How serious Well every once in a while I will see an interview in the local paper where someone will ask a female midshipman from the Naval Academy what she thinks about the men at St John s and she ll say They re fine from the neck up Douglas has completed his musical comedy about this rivalry between USNA and St John s and it is on the roster of plays being considered for production next year by the King William s players the student theater group at St John s College In addition to the musical comedy and his anthology of international ethics poems Douglas has also written a set of poems on international development for the SAIS Student Journal as well as an array of personal poems for friends and family throughout the years He draws inspiration from Robert Frost Robert Service and Ogden Nash for his personal poetry which he illustrated in an amusing anecdote about a poetry contest he entered in Vermont I was cross country skiing with my son in Northern Vermont and we stopped at a little town The scene was like something out of a Robert Frost poem complete with snow and a potbellied stove I picked up a local paper and saw an advertisement for a statewide poetry contest to see who could write the best poem in the style of Robert Service I thought to myself Now there s a challenge The deadline was two days away so I got busy writing my poem My poem was about getting lost while cross country skiing and encountering a moose who ended up leading me back to the ski lodge I was pretty pleased with the poem but when I asked one of my students in the Georgetown program who was from Vermont whether he thought I could win he said Of course not Professor someone from Vermont is going to win And he was right But it was still a great experience Looking to the future Douglas points to environmental issues as the next frontier for his course and by extension his poetry At the moment he only has one week on the environment in his course but he is considering adding a second week due to a widespread renewed interest in the climate change debate on geo engineering I think the topic of geo engineering is becoming so much under discussion and is so important that I may give two weeks to the environment one week on what s happening and a speculative second week in which we discuss whether we should test out some of the potential solutions to these environmental problems we keep talking about he said This shift to looking at natural disasters and forces as threats to international security would mesh well with Douglas s goal of using his poetry to galvanize students into thinking about ethics and security in a new light He suggests that many unarmed problems like climate change are even more pressing than the more traditional threats like nuclear proliferation and that students and future leaders should therefore retool their approaches to ensuring security For instance Douglas points out that an epidemic anywhere is a threat to everyone because of globalization We re spending 20 billion dollars every year maintaining our strategic triad of nuclear delivery systems with the goal of deterring everyone else s But we re not doing a cost benefit analysis as to which things will provide the most security per dollar spent Douglas stated During the Ebola epidemic things got so bad because the public health systems in the affected countries is so primitive that they couldn t deal with it so the virus got loose and arrived in the United States and there was a big panic that it would spread here Suppose we d taken 10 million of our 20 billion dollars of nuclear spending and tried to beef up the public health system in those countries That would have contributed more to overall security than one more missile he suggests One less fighter plane could have improved the public health system in Sierra Leone enough to stop an epidemic So as we in the Security Studies Program continue in our quest to protect a world plagued by uncertainty and insecurity let us draw inspiration from one man s pursuit of poetic justice and remember a rhyme a day just might keep
