In certain wars you live or die
by birthday lottery.
So take a hint from #45
who had the nous to see
that Fate had wondrous things in mind
for someone clearly blessed
with brains and vision, power of speech,
better than the best.
So if, like him, you do not want
to find yourself kaput,
just find a doc who’ll diagnose
a bone-spur on your foot.
