William F Buckley Jr died on Wednesday
With his quietus many conservative ideas passed away
The world was sad to see him go
Late in life of him I came to know.
A brilliant mind
One of a kind!
Wrote spy thrillers as though he were a liberal
Based on historical facts and nothing trivial
Never got to watch “Firing Line”
With his views of the conservative paradigm
Thank God he wrote many a book
Giving liberals opportunity to take a second look
Wish there was more time to hear
About the standards he made so clear.
Sorry that his voice is gone
But his conservative legacy will live on.
