Prompt: Write a poem about The Myth of [blank]

The Myth Of The Good Politician 

My vote, my vote
for a good politician,
morally outraged,
definitely sincere,
a revolutionary,
maverick,
savvy intellectual,
underdog,
survivor,
empathic leader,
caring (of course),
historic voice,
visionary,
collaborative player,
inclusive,
a legend,
there's bound to be one out there
I just haven't found them yet,
but if you know where they are,
please let me know so that 
I can pinch their face and
make sure they're real.
