Can the President Come Outside and Play?

It’s hard hearing about past presidents;

the news checks up on them

every now and again

they knock plaintively on their old door

and some face answers

“Jimmy had a fall today but

tomorrow he’ll be fine to play”


“George is feeling a bit under the weather,

he’ll cheer up soon,

we know he’ll get better”

It’s hard hearing about old loves,

those wonky pigeons and graceful doves.

For a time, they were everyone’s neighbor

but they’ve moved now

to some other cul-de-sac in some other town.

We just hope they’re doing okay.
