Read Poem: His Destiny Was Bringing Us a Future, by Stephen Fernbach

(c) 2023 SJF/JQK

Jack Kennedy’s legacy is alive and well
In the twenty first centry
Still going strong.
His life was full of temptations
Because he enjoyed
All the trappings of the rich.
Even so, he was courageous
And was never afraid to speak his mind
As well as setting almost impossible goals
Including landing a man on the moon.
His popularity grew so large
That he achieved savior status.
Unfortunately, the good tend to die young,
But he left behind many of the liberties
We enjoy today like civil rights
And space exploration.
He was our first superstar president
And there will never be another like him again.
