Who were these men

who had what it took

to be commander in chief of all the armed forces,

to suggest what to do with our country’s resources?


Who were these men?

Not just names in a book:

the ones who stood firm or preferred compromise,

the ones of great stature (though not always size),

the ones we’ve forgotten, the ones we still prize.


Who were these presidents?

Who were these guys?
