I’m pretty flipping busy today, so all i have time for is a quick preview of a poem ill finish eventually

Why Ben Franklin Wasn’t President

Our Country has seen great presidents:

Washington, Jeffereson, Taft, Monroe

And each has set their great presedent

Included is Ben Franklin, right? NO!!!!

Basically Ben was a terrible guy

so a horrid president he’d make

And now you say, “But why?”

Well i wrote this to tell you for goodness sake!

If Benjamin Franklin were president:

Prostitution would be alright

Brothels would run rampant

Marriage the dust would bite

And our ethics would be hampered
