In civil war of brother against brother... There came a man in bearded face to slavery wanted erase. In times of war of mother country in history man takes his violent place... Of man's own violent ways he cannot ever face. Freedom of man is his own precise... That factual fact he must come to realize. War of man is a maddening disease... Still the fact that needs to cease. Ole Abe Lincoln fed the flames of freedom's train... Equality of woman and man should forever on our heads to fall and rain. I cannot understand no one not has commented on this poem. Oh well. This was a nice poem. God bless all poets-May they be Presidents or even civilians-MJG.

I didn't actually realize he was a literary genius as well as a skilled politician. This man really had a way with words and a deeper understanding of ART.
