It’s evident that the president
will soon begin his second term.
I dig back in memories
and I go back to Hoover.
And I recall
in the house where I grew up
no one felt good
and even Eleanor drew scorn
near the place where I was born.
But Franklin had four terms anyway.
Those times survive in recollections
and by this time.
I’ve gathered quite a collection.
Where I live
some folks go back to Coolidge.
