The 'shoulders' Of Our Nation..... [u.S. President; Politics? ; Responsibility; Short] - Poem by Bri Edwards

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.

    True enough. But in my opinion he gets away with too much. Needs more of a pounding (Report) Reply
