Unfounded? - Poem by Ima Ryma

The Founding Fathers did not bear
The scrutiny of public eye.
Had the public been more aware,
Could some Founders have gotten by?
Franklin fathered bastards galore.
Hancock smuggled in booze to sell.
Jefferson, a drunkard and more.
Hamilton had affairs, do tell.
Washington held and traded slaves.
These and others were not snow white.
But all of them went to their graves.
Looking good in history's light.

Had there been all the tabloid press,
Founding Fathers might have found less.
