A Wife In Politics

I can be a little shy
Of few words at first
But take my wife. . .

The Mrs. is a success
In local politics
Knows policy, trend, and tendency

She rubs elbows with
The figures you see on tv, on the internet

She’s pleased to meet you, and
Shows a side more strategic
Than at home–

An agenda, that’s ok to have in a public game
A stance, allies, enemies
It’s fine to take your money and use it

Though I miss her
While she’s out campaigning
I remind myself she’s helping her community

Opening eyes to the problems outside
Smiling broadly
Shaking hands

There she is on the internet–
That’s my wife, successful local politician

Will you smile, as well?
