So much in the future depends
on the decisions made today.
Choosing leaders, passing issues.
Everyone has a say.
Politicians spend their time
trying to prove they are great.
The rest of us consider and try to decide
how they compare, how they rate.
I'm glad I'm not one of them.
Can you imagine how difficult it must be
to guard so cautiously
all that you do
and all that people see?
Each word spoken
must be carefully weighed.
Because you know for certain,
the world will notice if mistakes are made.
So for all of our sakes
and for the sake of our future too,
let's hope the best men and women win.
The fates of many rely on so few.
