American Can Do - Poem by Harlan Simantel

of all the president guys
exalted in the minds of american eyes
i'd choose - none

when all is said and done
tho i appreciate the good they did
let me lift off my mental lid:

ben franklin was wiser than all
tho he may be egotistically small
his spirit of service
God-given helping ambition
made him a notable american son

thanks ben and God your friend
much good you both together did send
