Fifty-three, well armed with expertise,
Invades the sacred precincts of a grant.
Funding anxiously awaits her smile,
The lifeblood of a promising idea.
Yet much debris must first be cleared away.

There may be some tough moments in her day,
Hard-edged talk as she makes problems clear,
Revisions that she phrases for the file.
Even so, she knows what both sides want:
Each to give each child a gift that frees.
