The Seldom Seen Side of Abraham Lincoln

By Elton Camp Lincoln wasn’t greatly loved in his day Until the coward Booth blew him away Long, lanky, scruffy beard on his face Some called his appearance a disgrace The families of the thousands killed With the president weren’t so thrilled With the war he had an obsession He had many fits of deep depression Honest Abe split a rail right well And a funny story he loved to tell Found in Matthew Brady’s studio Is a picture that shows him on the go He often held a boom box to his ear Lively dancing music he loved to hear When the war wasn’t going too well He would shuck and jive for a spell

Who would have thought it!
