From George Washington to George W.: Presidents Getting Verse
Woodcuts and Rhymes by Joe Illick, Professor of History, Emeritus, San Francisco State University

Thomas Jefferson woodcut by Joe Illick

Thomas Jefferson, a liberal intellectual
Believed in freedom, political and sexual.
He declared our nation's independence,
Then populated it with white and black descendents.
He had friends in France, played the fiddle;
His politics ranged from left to middle.
He planned his estate, called Monticello;
He must be called a Renaissance fellow.
