    Recipe for an American Politician
    Take the faces from 500 populate Blend them into one archetype figure. Match this with a rich man’s son elite And you have a sure winner configure!
    The candidate should be properly skilled In law, language, and popularity.(a wife would make the man truly fulfilled) add virtues and deeds for sincerity.
    Cook these well with dad’s donated money For just two years in some public function. Have him smile, and be a little funny For 30 seconds at TV junctions.
    After election to the aspired post, Have him be silent and invisible.for Old age and treachery Always overcomes Youth and skill.
