A Moment of Wishful Thinking

Just trump the term “Obamacare”
and stick with ACA,
’cause thus it was and thus it is;
it’s working every day.
Why not retain the good and where
it isn’t, make it better?
Your legacy can still be deemed
a positive trend setter
for future presidents to see
a man of true compassion.
(Retain your present course and find
your past will keep rehashin’.)

Your promises to shake things up
could bring you real acclaim
around the world if you’d aspire
to make your famous name
synonymous with empathy
for every living thing.
You’re president…for good or ill.
Which future will you bring?
