It was a long career of distinguished service

It was a long career of distinguished service:

to Country, apparently;
to Party, markedly;
to a fine-feathered nest egg
as opportunity increased occasion.

And this experience of years
astounding
bade perfunctory persuasion,
made sufficient as
to be accorded
worldly-wise
with gravitas
and lauded elder statesman.
