Silent Cal

"Silent Cal" Coolidge was known for holding phrase to a dearth!

   Presiding at laying a cornerstone he turned the customary spade of earth.

      The crowd eagerly awaited his remarks.  He thought and finally did affirm,

         As he strolled to his car, saying, "My, that was a mighty fine fishing worm!"
