Eugene Allen,

who served eight

US presidents

knew how to butle.


He practiced


never to insults

giving rebuttal.


Sometimes to

those with ego

God sends

saintly, and

most subtle.

Footnote: Oprah Winfrey has

made a movie about Eugene Allen

called The Butler. News reports said he

was trained after his father's

murder on a plantation to enter a

room and know the room was still empty

(to be so soundless people were not aware

of his presence). He was

married for 65 years.

He wept at Obama's inauguration.

He had served during the

administrations of Truman

through Reagan. Nancy Reagan

invited him as a guest to a White

House dinner.
