Choosing A Leader - Poem by harrison smith

Send them home now
The liars the cheats
The seekers after place
The over wealthy the hard of face.

Give those a chance
The often reluctant
Without favour, enhancement
Or family advancement.

Let's be rid of the talkers
The windy the pompous
The sly and the mighty
That air their views nightly on any TV.

We should look to the wise
Their humble sagacity
The quiet the thoughtful
Whose word their veracity.

Let's not praise stupidity
Or admire cupidity
The cut of his suit
The cost of her dress,
If we all grow up,
Will no longer impress.
