We honor a genuine leader's term, renewed

A President of foresight, tenacity and fortitude

A President of integrity and humanity, inbred

A President; cool, unpretentious and God lead

A President with valid allegiance; long-lasting

A President of due diligence, to do the right thing

A President; ethical, compassionate; tried and true

The forerunner unafraid to charge thorough

A President with a certified, American patriot seal

A President; competent and cognizant; the real, deal

The President of the U. S. A.;  Hip, Hip, Hooray Visual Poetry

President Bust On Stand Visual Poem

 

...American Presidents are of a rare brand

One and all arrived with eclectic résumés, in hand

The lawyers, engineer, farmers, surveyor

Plantation owners, sheriff, teacher, writer, tailor

Generals, minister, journalist, inventor

Pilot, investor, publisher, actor

No matter previous titles; each stood an innovator

Our President holds the Commander-in-Chief seat

A seat to make decisions; comprehensive and discreet

It requires fortitude, savoir-faire and ability to persevere

The job is never-ending; 24/7, 365 days of the year

Holidays, vacations and sleep may be interfered

And placed in the rear

For, the President must remain; forever ready

To smoothly, engineer

At last, generating a reserved, worn, aged and revered pioneer

Thus, an exclusive Bust on a Stand is status quo

To pay the utmost respect to America's first-class, superhero
