Honesty & Trump - Poem by Tom Zart
Those who wish to be President
Must practice what they teach.
For their people need inspiring
To believe what they preach.
Take heed therefore, unto yourselves
You overseers of the flock
Or the voters shall cast you out
For your futures are not of rock.
Life may place you in deep waters
Though it doesn't wish you to drown.
It's your past record that lets us know
Who you are as you smile or frown.
If you wish to be president
From the truth you must never part.
Power corrupts the best of us
When we stop listening to our heart.
The fame of people should always be
Estimated by the means they used.
It’s human breath that promotes most fame
Often unwholesome and abused.
The perfume of goodness projects fame
Performed by those with great passion.
Not by persons in corrupt temples
Whose honesty and love they must ration.
