“The election of a man can have a profound effect.
The election of a man can change the course of nations,
can change the course of lives,
can change the course of man onto the path of righteousness.
The election of a man sways the forests of knowledge and of wisdom:
the forests overgrown with briars and supplejack—
which hold hands with those who would resist the brash and bold—
as such attempt to reach out to the sunlight where warmth is found with truth enabled to exist.
The election of a man can change the health of a nation,
can change the educational sweep of universities,
of the scholarship of learning,
of the beliefs of students,
of the curricula as assigned to teachers.
The election of a man can change the lifestyle of the dissolute and the purview of the desolate;
can change the outlook of the job hunters—
which empower a nation on the the road to greatness;
can recall the economics of industry and commerce to retake the centre stage for impact:
on all the lives who partake and sample that which is about to be.
The election of a man can revitalize the courts of justice where meanness of the spirit gathers an agreement,
prevails in all which is said and sealed in hindering the advance of man,
in serving up lukewarm decisions upon plates worn-out and cracked.
The election of a man can spell the end of corruption,
can stamp on the well which waters cronyism,
can enforce with wisdom what has been lost within stupidity.
The election of a man can start the turning of the cogs,
the rolling of the wheels,
the ringing of the registers of cash.
The election of a man can turn on the lights in factories,
can have them glowing in the night,
can re-enliven each hive so filled with activity.
The election of a man can electrify a nation,
can awaken those found sleeping at their desks,
can encourage the disheartened to revisit the commitments:
when enthusiasm rules the beginning of each day.
The election of a man can bring hope and satisfaction,
can dispel despair and dismay,
can reach out to absorb the challenges ignored:
when yesterday dragged dreariness within its wake.
The election of a man can put a spring into a step,
a dance into a song,
a prayer into a soul,
life into the spirit,
awake all from their days of slumber.
The election of a man can call in the hum of machinery,
the stamping of the presses,
the filling of the orders,
the recycling of the waste.
The election of a man can be justified by the busyness as generated,
the turnaround in attitudes,
the smiles upon the faces,
the dissolving of the violence,
the rejoicing in the home where employment reigns with hope,
where life can now progress,
where effort is rewarded,
where wages can be geared,
where purchases can be secured and holidays now planned.
The election of a man can remove the threat of loss,
can remove the thoughts of self-destruction,
can remove the concept of being “stuck in the mud” and so unable to advance.
The election of a man can bring communities to life,
can splash the paint around,
can arouse the sleeping giants,
can awaken to the “spick and span” as effort is revealed.
The election of a man welcomes the neat and tidy;
so pride retrieves its place of honour:
in the achievements of a nation now reverting to its prime.
The election of a man can be a matter for the history books,
can be a matter for example,
can be a matter to be cherished,
can be a matter to be remembered,
can be a matter to be honoured,
can be a matter for the records,
can be a matter of success in building chains which will no longer yield when under stress.
The election of a man restores the right to life;
restores the understanding of accomplishments within the strength of God;
restores examples built on righteousness where the trivial is forgotten;
restores with honour all which women hold as grievances in experience denied,
in rewards withheld,
in equality usurped;
restores all which has been stolen by the ineptitude of the recent past.”
