When I was young and eager and my world was oh so new

I fell in love with ideals as young persons often do

And found myself those heroes I would keep my whole life through

Now one of those was Nehru, to his values he was true

Then there’s Walter Reuther whose murder didn’t spin a clue,

General George Patton, the hero all red, white and blue !

Who recalls Doug MacArthur and the victories he drew

As he saved wartorn nations for the many from the few

Next came Kenneth Galbraith and economies that grew.

Teddy Roosevelt was keen and a giant prone to spew

Who made Panama Canal a reality to view,

Then Christ who made the promise I’m still looking forward to !
