Lincoln And George

 

They were born

During that time

Of the great democracy,

Freedom, equality,

There were cameras,

Satellites in the sky

And drones to imprint

The reasons why,

One was born into

Instant wealth and fame,

The world bowing at his feet,

The other was given

A penny at birth,

One was named George

The other named Lincoln,

Everyone knew what

George would be doing,

I wondered if Lincoln

Would grow up

To study law.
