The Gaffe King Would Be 78 If He Won

In sports 50 may be the new 40 and 60 the new 50
In terms of occupying the oval office those observations somewhat ifty
Athletes who treat their  as temples the aging process defeat
But the office of presidency is a full time job of stress with little stress retreat
Being in the oval office every day
Is a never ending assault of stress coming a president’s way
The president’s features are like the subjects of time lapse photography to display
Accelerating the effects of aging as opposed to being it able to delay
Obama’s hair with gray very soon
Rarely had the same energy before when he entered a room
An athlete knows that a mistake is not fatal tomorrow is another chance
A president knows that a mistake means his agenda or our security may not advance
Joe Biden the gaffe king would be 78 if in 2020 he won
No wonder many Blues are questioning at that age why he should run
A sense of duty to the country or a realization the Blue bench is rather thin
Coupled with the ego all politicians possess a total belief he would win
Biden may still have the office of the presidency to aspire
But against a man of incredible energy like Trump he may gasp and tire
