The Cowboy Patrician - Poem by William Graham

He veered out of Texas by way of Yale
With a message both dangerous and stale.
He sought to lead the national government;
He had no clue of what governing meant.
Every twisted word that he uttered
Was like a leaf that floated from gutter
To gutter. If the nation was to succeed,
He said, then the government should not lead.
Trust in people of faith, not those on the hill.
When a dissenting voice was raised, his will
To listen shriveled. God showed him righteous
Actions—leaving us to clean up the mess.
America, this lesson we must learn:
Place your trust in those who wish to govern.
