George Herbert Walker Bush (1924-2018)
Today, George Herbert Walker Bush is dead.
A man whose family called him, “Forty One.”
He was a warrior who died in his bed.
In his tenth decade, now his race is run.
He was a tall man, born to wealth and grace,
At eighteen, volunteered to serve in war.
For him, a chance to serve was commonplace.
And he found life had many more in store.
The Congress, CIA, and President,
A namesake son who served as, “Forty Three.”
Throughout his life his grace was evident.
We never saw a trace of trumpery.
George Herbert Walker Bush has passed away,
A “point of light” to join the Milky Way.
