Advice to Candidates

Standard

Everyone wants to
be heard! Speak louder than the
rest, fill raucous rooms

with your rancorous
thunder, flail all resistance
to the ground. Your lies

will win the night; but
in the clear morning, be still.
Listen as small birds

rest lightly on sway-
ing branches. With piercing song
they paint a new day.
