Leader of The Day

By Bud Lemire

I am the Leader of The Day
But you don't have to do it my way
I can not tell you what to do
I will leave that up to you

I relay what's happening that day
From our bosses, is what I'll say
It keeps them from repeating every word
From only one person, you will have heard

It's passed from our boss, to the Leader Of The Day
I believe it really works out better that way
Being Leader, doesn't make you the boss
You're Little Joe, you can't be Hoss

So what's the agenda for today?
Will it be Bingo, or cards that we play?
Oh it is Cover Up, well if that's what you say
I'll listen to the boss, from The Leader Of The Day

I'll follow the Leader, that's what I'll do
The words from your mouth, must be true
You don't have to do it the same way
I'm only The Leader Of The Day

Author Note:

I wrote this with Senior Companion's Leader
of The Day in mind. But also wrote it for
everyone else as well. Being a leader is
appreciating the unique way each person
does things, no matter how they do it.
Accepting them for who they are, not for
what they aren't. Not many people do that.
And we need more of that in the world.
