morton schapiro, mimi schapiro
they roll their dice in 123 places through libraries
their thoughts, century old

yet, when we think of Barack Obama,
we think of Richard Nixon, John Kennedy, and George Bush,
all of these folks have a strong tie to Henry Hager and Max Barry

a help comes first by gloria page
then by white house writers who deliver letter of appreciations
a bird outside of Melania's window could sing sentences written by Emily Dickinson

John Hancock,
a rooster, a clock,
he crows aloud, from Washington D. C. to San FRancisco mountain

George Washington,
the old man who can be very capable of
reminding us of Jingle Yan in Emily Krajicek

Morton Schapiro
he is current
his history redone, all fine with John Evans / Donald Trump in clan

july poems

It was a Memorable Occasion,
And you will all agree,
When HRH The Duchess of Gloucester,
Officially opened our Court in Bushey.

Cecil Rosen Court in Bushey,
Named after the Founder of JBD,
Enabling Jewish Blind and Disabled Tenants
To live their lives Independently.

Thankful we are as Tenants,
To JBD who have housed us so well,
In this beautiful building,
Which to all ~ we shall tell.

Grateful we are to your Royal Highness,
For sparing us some time today,
To officially open our building,
And may this poem remind you of this day.

Remind you of the Ninth July Twenty Fourteen,
When to Bushey Heath you did go,
To open Cecil Rosen Court,
In the presence of JBD's team and CEO.

Copyright [c] Jonathan Goldman [JGthepoet] - 9 July 2014

The poem was Inscribed: -

With grateful thanks to Your Royal Highness for
giving us your time, on behalf of myself,
the JBD team and my fellow tenants.

It was signed and dated by the poet.
