Good Wishes, Mr. President
Dear Mr. Trump, May I call you Donald just today?©01/20/2017 Carol Welch
I'd like to ask if deep empathy
lies beneath your bold, bombastic way.
I want to wish you--and believe for--
gentle strength fortifying
your outward forcefulness.
With perception keen, to underlying intent,
your hearers bless.
And you, with wisdom of your chosen
company, enabled to enact,
good for all--what a laborious task,
to uphold your followers, opponents too,
the national respect that we all ask.
Just for today--Dear Donald,--after that,
Mr. President, a hand.
All God's blessing to enable you
to lead this great, vast land.
