The July Born Presidents in Rhyme

July 11, 2019

John Quincy had a talk with Clay,

A corrupt deal some would say;

But when no longer President

They called him “Old Man Eloquent.”

 

His moniker was “Silent Cal,”

Economy his rationale.

He lowered taxes and the debt;

Then faded into the sunset.

 

Jerry hadn’t sought the post;

It wasn’t what he wanted most.

He pardoned Dick to save the nation

But received no appreciation.

 

Although he went to Yale and Harvard

Many found his syntax awkward;

And though the victim of vile rumor

Dubya kept his sense of humor.
