Passing The Buck Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: ABAC DB DBDB BBBBB

Whatever the task that comes your wayA
Just take it as part of your luckB
Look it right square in the eyes and sayA
'This isC
my-
task I'll do it to day'D
Don't pass the buckB
-
-
Oh whether you cook or whether you fightD
Or whether you trundle a truckB
Just tackle your job and do it rightD
Don't pass the buckB
-
-
The wheels of the earth have gone alackB
Deep into war's mire and muckB
If you want to put it again on its trackB
Don't shift your load on another man's backB
Don't pass the buckB
