A Leader That Comes Only Once In a Few Generations

 

I want to see a leader who is willing

To do the right thing for our country

Not try to make a buck for themselves.

 

We need someone who is willing

To lead our nation to a brighter future

Not into quick sand so they

Can rule the land for a few days.

 

Our United States needs a

Person who is not self-centered

Someone who can think

What will save this country from

 Becoming just like all of the

Rest, a person who will maintain

Our country’s independent identity.

 

We need a leader not a

Chump who is down on his luck;

We need someone who is

Willing to walk away from a buck.

 

Our nation has to find a person

Willing to stand up for her

Not sell her out, she needs

A true once in a few generations

Type of leader to truly lead

 Our country to better times.
