    ABRAHAM LINCOLN

    He was deprived by force but still survived on course
    To become the sixteenth president, with political source
    His persevered character steered America to victory over
    Slavery the mystery of his bravery according books was bolder
    Than any man, spoke with a proud sound people crowd around
    To hear his speech reached banging the truth loud and renowned
    But at first a gangling youth around town mobbed on streets
    Had fact with pride, attacked on all sides never faced defeat
    Then moved to Knobcreek soon to be crowned the elite
    As president, being son of Nancy and Thomas gave fancy promise
    And hope to greatness, born in Kentucky he’s been lucky to succeed
    Critically and politically in America at that time it was difficult to lead
    But how did his nerves last down a curved path of stupidity?
    Had to be true and witty to control and operate a hate committee
    Of slave believing white folks can’t find the right quotes to describe
    How he survived

    You did great in defining some his struggles with his own deranged kind.
