MURRAY COUNTY POETRY

Poems by Murray Poets and Poems About Murray County
ON THE ELECTION OF LYNDON B. JOHNSON
AS PRESIDENT
by Emma Best


Now the election is over
And the smoke has cleared away,
May your reign be prosperous and healthy
Is my prayer for you today.
May the nation join together
To help you all they can,
When John F. Kennedy picked you
I think he chose a wise man.

Now I can rest assured
That our children will be safe,
For I feel we have a leader
That will protect the United States.
I know that you will guide us right
No matter what the cost,
And I thank God tonight
That my vote was not lost.
