The River

In praise of a great American

He thought little and did much

He moved mountains – literally

He was better than you

He put on the show and sold the tickets

He was the ringmaster’s master

He held the keys

He cracked the whip

He never once complained

But he had influence

Carl Influence, D-Ohio

He knew stocks

And owned printing presses

Everything was leveraged

Naturally, he reached the top

He touched the sun

And never once saw the shadow beneath his feet

Tasseled loafers
