4th JULY

Jefferson, Adams and Washington
All died on Independence Day, the celebrations
Presumably too much for them, perhaps
Frightened (like dogs and cats) by the fireworks

On the plus side, Garibaldi
The Italian nationalist, was born. Louis
Armstrong, the trumpeter. Gina Lollobrigida

Jack Johnson broke John Jeffries’ nose in Reno
And the Communist Manifesto was published

My great-grandfather was named after Garibaldi

Donald Trump, according to the record  
Is exactly the same dimensions as Mohammad Ali
