"I smoked my pipe on Mt. Vernon farm
And would return, however war rages--
No foul, no harm;
And for that I am Cincinnatus Redivivus."

"I struck my bargain with bold Napoleon
Before ink well-dried on our Declaration;
I prophesied no sunset should hem us in
And made us all Louisianians."

"I gave lady Liberty, for luck,
A glittering necklace fetched out of the sea
And hung rich round Panama's neck;
It sparkled for a century."

"I loved a fine lady who grew half mad;
We lost our beautiful son;
Bereft of every earthly gladness,
What could I but save the Union?"
