The February Presidents in Rhyme

February 7, 2018

With the future yet uncertain
George departed from Mount Vernon.
He fought and won and then became
First in war, peace, hearts, and fame.

William won a famous battle,
But after one month in the saddle
Lost his life to cold and flu.
So much for Old Tippecanoe.

Abe freed the slaves and saved the nation,
Gave the Gettysburg oration.
Memorials there are so many:
His face is even on the penny.

Ronnie spooked the Ayatollah,
Won every state but Minnesota,
Gave a speech in West Berlin,
And has a carrier named for him.
