Ronnie Reagan

'Tis well known that President Reagan was very fond of jellybeans.

   On the ranch he groomed his faithful hoss and wore some grubby jeans.

      During cabinet meetings he had a ritual that was somewhat bizarre!

         They made no major decisions 'til he passed around the jellybean jar!

    We all have our little peccadillos! I had no idea he enjoyed jellybeans so much it might have influenced public policy! (just kidding!) A most entertaining piece!! Keith

    Hi Bob -I love all of your poems with a politician or celebrity as the main character. They bring back wonderful memories of people who should not be forgotten. - Gail

    Got a chuckle from this memory of his Presidency... Maybe we need more cabinet meetings like that now?. The Great Communicator was a father figure to me in the 80's. Still miss him. Great poem Bob! - Tim
