State of the Union
Handsome when he was elected
clear eyes, lots of energy
optimistic about his new endeavor
to be President of the United States.
Photos now plastered in newspapers
and magazines, show a man who has aged
ten years, for the one year he has been in office.
The job, even for a more experienced man
Road blocks at every front
natural disasters and human mistakes
wars, economic downturns, health care
and so much more.
What is it about leadership?
Even with the best intention
there is a tendency to tear it down
but when it is broken and gone
we long for the good old days
because they were better
than the ones we’ve gotten.
