Or a Martin Luther King,
Someone who sets the soul on fire
And makes the pulses ring.
I want to vote for a Churchill,
Or an F. D. Roosevelt,
Someone who lifts the spirits up
And makes the heartstrings melt,
Someone like Helen Suzman,
Nelson Mandela or Joan of Arc,
Someone who changes history,
Forging light out of the dark,
A Lech Walesa, Vaclav Havel,
A Kennedy or Obama,
An Albert Schweizer, Thomas Merton,
A Buddha or Dalai Lama.
I want to vote for a Son of God
Or a Saint of High Renown,
But I know in the end I'll have to vote
For Cameron, Clegg or Brown.
I NOW OFFICIALLY DECLARE THIS BLOG TO BE AN ELECTION-FREE ZONE
