"A Head's Up"

a poem by Richard Gildea, UK - poetry writer, author, poet

(For our American Cousins)

Four heads (tis said) doth far outweigh the one
Or was it two? - No matter, if alone!
For in that case (lest pow'r should overcome)
We look to past, to see what's set in stone
Thru Washington we sense a Pater's touch
In Jefferson we find a 'founder' too
Whilst Lincoln 'Abe' did every bit as much
Preserving Union twixt both 'Gray and Blue'
Twas Roosevelt (embraced the Great Outdoors)
Established too, the premise of 'Square Deal`
Each one in turn then somehow underscores
All bearers of the 'Presidential Seal'
To gaze upon each 'Monumental' face
Reminds us of held dreams 'One' can't erase.
