Ogden Nash Poem for Eugene McCarthy



Rare find published in the Women for McCarthy newsletter:

Senator McCarthy's birthday was March 29

Happy Birthday, dear Eugene,
The first to give us a choice between.
Today in you we place our trust,
Not an alternative, but a must.
The kids are for you, glory be,
And so are wise old men like me.
How many statesmen of good intent
Would rather be right than president.
But I will gladly take my oath

That you're the man who can be both.
As your 52nd candle burns,
Many happy election returns!


Ogden Nash
