He Stood

He stood up tall.
He stood up straight.
He told us all
That he was great.
He stood and looked
So good he shook
Our hands and said,
“You’re living luck!
You have me here!
Go on ahead!
Now March! Now run!
You’ve almost won!”
He had us hooked.
He stood and led
And looked so good
Right where he stood.

He did it all except
He never took a step.
