The Indispensable Person

“…Take a bucket and fill it with water,
Put your hand in it up to the wrist,
Pull it out and the hole that’s remaining
Is a measure of how you’ll be missed.”

—Saxon White Kessinger, “The Indispensable Man.” 

The Internet contends that this fragment was carried around by Dwight D. Eisenhower.
