FDR, the Best Roosevelt

The nation busted
The bowl was dusted
And FDR was ready to roll
He was always topping the polls
Only feared
Fear itself
Franklin couldn’t go for a stroll
Went to war
Rocked some more
And he lacked motor control
Secret cripple
No one knew
He was always on the partrol

He also threw thousands of Japanese-Americans into internment, largely destroyed the economy in a vast number of ways, undid the constitution by redefining the role of government, he extended the Depression an estimated six years, and he cursed us with a massive entitlement program which now has a 30 trillion dollar short-fall.

His myth will live on.

Your ill-supported and highly debatable claims completely ignore the humourous intent of this poem.  Everyone was enjoying themselves and this light verse until your comment appeared.  Way to go.

Hi Alex: I am a 67 year old Grandma and former teacher who just returned from a Hudson Valley vacation.  We had to see the FDR library after seeing the Roosevelts on PBS and we loved being there.  I am in a poetry group which meets tomorrow and I wanted to find a poen about FDR.  I loved your humor!  Could you tell me a little more about you so I can present a biography of you to my lady friends. Sincerely, Alicyn Goughnour Fair Oaks, Ca
