He ran for president
now he runs the nation.

His fortune gave him a run in with a woman.
She ran her fingers down his hair.

The tabloids saw and ran the story.
The speculation ran around,

And his wife said, “Don't come running
to me for cover.”
With his run of bad luck,

He said he was going for a run,
we didn't know he'd ran away.

Since the roads run forever,
and the rivers run short.

We can only assume he made a run
for the border,
where the cartels run orders.

This a poem about adultery, and experiments with the different definitions of the word "run" throughout the story.
