United Now We See

If there's something
that's even better

than a president
singing "Let's Stay Together"

it's a president
singing "Amazing Grace."

“Sometimes I think
that’s the best thing to hope for
when you’re eulogized

after all the words and recitations
and resumes are read

to just say somebody
was a good man.”
