The 'Shoulders' Of Our Nation..... [U.S. President; Politics? ; Responsibility; SHORT]


For what reason do we elect “The President” ……every four years?
The election result brings smiles to some; to others it brings tears.

Then, if popular opinion sides with “Him”, “He” gets the credit;
BUT when things turn out poorly, “He” gets blamed; you can BET it!

So I guess “He’s” our “Shoulder”, for us/”U.S.”, to pamper or to pound,
saving us from having to spread the praise, OR the poison, all around.

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
