Setting the Stage for a Luminous Future


Mort's birthday poem for Elaine


You’ve had many successes in trying to improve education

To get it in a productive groove.


And, snarkiness aside, planning is no sin.

In truth, for us all, you’ve been the linchpin.


With politics, you try to see the light

When others (one to be precise) see only darkest night.


Like a WaWa hoagie, stay on your roll.

Seriously, I’m not being droll.


Have a Happy Birthday!



With boundless love,


Mort
