Happy Birthday to Ronald Reagan at 90

(With sincere apologies to Dr. Seuss.)

Today is your day.
You went to great places!
Dutch you had your fine day.

You had brains in your head.
You had pride in your heart.
You led our great country
At the end and the start.

You were alive when the Cold War began.
Up to the Evil Empire you did stand.
Those who said the Soviets were here to stay
Were the same to claim they would fall anyway.

To Berlin all the way you flew
And stood up tall,
And invited Gorbachov to,
“Tear down this wall!”

When you came in inflation was high.
Interest rates caused borrowers to cry.
When you left inflation was tame.
And the prime rate fell just the same.

Of all that you have achieved, one thing stands out.
Of American greatness you had no doubt.
You reminded us all of what’s inside.
We can now look at each other in pride.

And did you succeed?
Yes! You did indeed
Ninety-eight and three-quarters percent guaranteed.
