An honest politician

What if God made an honest politician to give us a choice
To turn from our ways, and gave us a voice?

What would he look like, this hero-to-be?
Would he be hansome with perfect hair, perfect teeth?

Would he be tall, broad and strong?
Always be right and never be wrong?

Would he put down his foes, shame them outright,
Bring up their past, in their failure delight?

Would he know all the right answers to America's ills,
Would he solve all our problems with the stroke of his quill?

Or would he be humble, unassuming and meek,
When accused and cajoled, turn the other cheek?

Would it be policy or people he serves,
Stand up for Truth, Principle his nerve?

Would he be consistent, year after year,
Or change his opinion to suit the right ear?

Would he cater to the rich, the nobles and elite,
Or to the peasant, the man on the street?

God's perfect man would bring Justice to all,
The rich, the poor, the great and the small.

Unyeilding in principle, true to the end,
offering peace, his hand as a friend.

"Do no harm" his motto would be,
but, "Defend my home? I guarantee!"

But what if we missed him in his humble attire,
Overlooked him for a more eloquent sire?

That couldn't happen! Miss him, surely not!
Heroes are always easy to spot.
