America the Beautiful’s President
Should know the LORD and practice poetry,
Write law, love people, use his heaven-sent
Irrevocable gifts and call to free
The spirits small and great, with collars blue
And white, and lead the people to the heights
By bolting wheels to visions old and new,
For with no vision people disunite.
The President who’s lived the quiet life,
Accustomed to the inward reverie
Aware of how the Holy Spirit moves,
Can face the conflicts, challenges and strife,
Will manage home and foreign policy,
And lead the nation so that it improves.
