Nixon died this week, 20 years ago on April 22, 1994. Photographer Ginny Lee wrote this poem on April 28, 1994 about the man for a class.

 

Nixon died last night 


Well, I guess you were a pretty good piano player.

But you hated me and didn’t even know my name.

Out in the streets back then trying to get friends I didn’t know home from Vietnam.

Whining, paranoid little man with a niggardly heart.

Hateful, hateful, hateful.


Ginny Lee
