Once, he killed a deejay at a rave.

And as for slavery, he was “for.”

Forget about the guy he shot.

And he once ate a badger whole.

Not a real good president.

Brushed his teeth with Pepsodent.
James A. Garfield loved lasagna;
Hated Mondays and the dog.

And Grover Cleveland made it two.

All the details are banal.

So he built a big canal.

His VP was a man named Dick.

Liked fast women and made men.

He gave us a teevee war.

Barry O, the last elected;
You’re the one I’ll miss the most.
*I realize I repeated Madison, but changing it would require rewriting the whole thing; the error remains. In fact: I meant to do it.
