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.
