If I Were President

written by: Anne G



If I Were President

of the US of A

I would listen to all

no matter the age

leading not by position

but with wisdom

earned trust

I would bring to fruition

all the promises made

keeping faith with the people

who believed

what was said

To those that did not

I would try to convince

I was worth every vote

every ballot

not earned

It matters

not much

if female or male

a man for all seasons

a woman of all

It is courage, conviction

great character

and strength

that make a true leader

of a nation like ours

Why write?
I write because I am:
Driven to distraction by the inequities of the society in which we live.
Motivated by cruelty, abuse, ignorance and indifference.
My intention: To poke, prod and provoke!
"Moderation is a fatal thing. Nothing succeeds like excess." - Oscar Wilde
