'You work hard
For what you want
In life, ' said Michelle Obama.
'That your word is your bond'
That was not said by James Bond
But by the real First Lady.
'That you treat people with dignity
That you protect
Even someone with no body.
Teaching the next generation
Honesty and fairness
Is very important for the Nation
Give credit with style and finesse
Where it is due. No pranks
Smile, give thanks
And show enormous appreciation
When quoting or paraphrasing
Not everything or everyone is for sale
Not everything or everyone can be bought
Thank you Michelle
This is a food for thought
Now we can laugh, now we can sing.
