                      The motive to be powerful is one
                      An upright politician ought to shun;
                      Instead, one’s obligation is to serve
                      With patience, skill, integrity and verve.

                     And yet, too often, ego is in charge,
                     Which typically in candidates is large,
                     And being top dog in a nasty pack
                     Means victory goes to those who best attack.

                     Let’s pray for one who’ll rise above the fray
                     And whose integrity will save the day
                     Employing what we all should realize—
                     The attitudes and skills of being wise.
