Find the good and praise it*, Mr. President.
Be like the Horned Lark on our freshly-manured corn field.
At first he pecks with little success at the perimeter, but suddenly!
He skims. Drops. Melts into the ground. And then?
Runs the Farrows! Runs.
Digs out the seed, camouflaged in in the compost.
Your second term is loaded with the seeds of potential.
We need collective action to nurture them;
you’ll inaugurate it.
