My old Dad, George Gulick, was a poet with a keen political eye. Events since his death five years ago reveal just how keen his eye was. Here, Mr. Gulick takes us back to 2004 and a Vice-Presidential debate.
I T’S A D E B A T E !
The one tonight’s Vice-Presidential.
Already given us are Aaron Burr and John Nance Garner;
Spiro Agnew: his less was more
than doubled groceries at the store;
Albert Gore, the more or less,
who lost his residential privilege near the Mall.
Incumbent Cheney’s condemned,
but goes Halliburton! and back
to keep his holdings
in Iraq intact;
versus the Senator whose smile
numbs May … into November.
So of Victor Moore, whose mores were the most,
let’s sing: the best man ever –
a Vice-Presidential toast.
