A neat analogy! Praying that God will give wisdom (that it will be sought). It is a time of great uncertainty. Expectations may be far to much and too high for any human!

Well spoken sir, though I might add that the whole world's wholeness to a certain degree also depends on that first draft.

I wish him well in more ways than one. The survival of democracy as we know it may be in the hands of DC at this point. But every President is a 'wip' and some never get it.

Politically, this is great and I like this analogy a lot. Personally, stanza 2 makes me want to take my brain through a car wash and get that swamp cleaned out!!

I just hope he gets re-elected and has a chance to write many drafts!

I like this from beginning to end, but esspecially the final stanza. I can only imagine to write something so important and dream of a poem that will stand the test of time and critics. This reminded me that I had recently updated several of my older poems for publication and realized that they have felt the final draft. Now and forever sealed beneath the gravestone of a book cover, they rise or fall on the eyes of the reader. Excellent poem that evokes a writers passion. jj
