Thought cops wouldn’t determine,
he put himself in that popcorn box.
Maybe he should have used his socks.

A world famous recluse.
Millions for planes, women and cars,
treasured most his urine in jars.

A czarina whose needs couldn’t wait.
Rumored to have a private stable,
with horses…. if her Cossacks weren’t able.

May his fables never stop,
true treasures among many Greek joys.
Whereas Socrates, Plato, chose educating boys.

Add to the amazing things he’s done,
was never caught chewing a mint wreath,
while mixing politics and funky breath from wood teeth.

I hate to tell you son,
you searched Florida for the fountain of youth.
AARP there first, how’d you miss the booth.

There’s a girl I wanted to know.
It could’ve worked out fine,
if Bobby and Jack didn’t head the line
