A Great ManBy: Frances M. McCrory Nov 22, 1963
A Nation’s love comes too late Why was it done and who did it?
For a great man He must have been mad
Who’s outstanding love To have fired a shot so fatal
Was for all the world. And committed treason to the world.
He fought for peace He stunned a nation.
For a nation and world He mystified the world.
That thought him great He wrote unwanted history.
And knew him brave. He fired the deadly shot.
He was the leader of a nation, This man set our nation back’
And diplomat to the world, Our example of vote, not gun
The enemy of injustices, Is democracy and freedom's way
An unyielding friend of freedom. Was compromised that day.
While a nation watched, It took men long fighting years
While the whole world looked on, To establish a standing democracy.
A man, unseen, fired three shots. It took one man, one shot
And added pages to history. To rip our image apart.
Now the world stands still May the name John F. Kennedy stand
To show its unyielding respect alongside the word freedom.
To a man of peace who was loved May God grant his work be carried on
By free nations 'round the world. And let freedom come to all mankind.
