How To Bake A President - Poem by Bill Grace

Start with two parents who have a sense of destiny denied
Add one child or nine as with the Kennedy’s
Gently fold in years of education be it formal or informal
Remember Lincoln birthed the Gettysburg
From his Bible and Shakespeare and the Greeks
Add a dash of war hero or military service
Let it rise for five years before
Beating it down – twice
Bake in a crucible of national crisis
Voil`a! A classic Presidential legend
Able to feed an endless history.
