                   The motive to be powerful is one
                   An upright politician ought to shun;
                   Instead, the instigation ought to be
                   A prompting that is nearly ego free:
                   To be a public servant and to serve
                   With knowledge and intelligence and verve,
                   Especially aiming be President,
                   For surely it should be self-evident
                   That this position of such awesome power
                    Unto which office we’ve entrusted our
                    Own sacred lives and liberties entails
                    A character within which ego pales,
                         One governed by a noble, righteous soul
                         With mutual thriving as its utmost goal.
