Who will be my backup
In case of a crackup?
Or something far worse
Say I’m put in a hearse
And I become a resident
Of a cemetery
Who will then become president?
You can bet not Rick Perry
That guy’s a mouth-breather
And not very nice
And not Gingrich either
And not Condi Rice
Maybe a Hispanic?
This choice is gigantic
What man or woman can project mild glory
While living at the Naval Observatory?
