George Herbert Walker Bush, 1989-1993

George Herbert Walker Bush
Family pull but not much push.
Wealth, connections, distinguished past —
War hero, ambassador and not last,

Director of the C.I.A.
Well-trained, no wimp we say — but hey!
Note his credentials, read his lips,
Check the essentials, study his clips;

A war abroad; kinder, gentler at home.
Competent leader. End of the poem.

-Joe Illick
