springfieldpoem #11

I once knew our presidents
in order a little confusion with
the polks and tippecanoes but
I usually made it past teddy
up to franklin d which is where
I was in school but here in spfld
presidential streets are raggedy
madison jefferson washington
adams monroe jackson’s in there
somewhere not much of a street
but that’s not its fault lincoln
is shunted beyond what used to be
west grand but got changed to
macarthur after I will return
not unexpectedly honest abe is
paired with douglas who was a
wannabe while millard fillmore
when was he in office anyway
he’s quietly minding his own
business way off in jerome
