Rhode Island – Best & Worst

RHODE ISLAND – BEST & WORST

Roger Williams, Samuel Slater

Struggled to make our state greater

Moses Brown worked to free the slaves

H. P. Lovecraft popularized graves

Gorham shaped silver at his forge 

Gilbert Stuart painted our George

Ida Lewis, that lighthouse dame

Cohan Yankee-doodled to fame

John Chafee, Claiborne, Pastore

Heroes from our proud history

But Little Rhody’s hit a bump

Thanks to so-called President Trump

General Flynn, from Middletown

Recognizable by his frown

Retired but still in the fight

Shot down for lying to the right

Sean Spicer hails from Barrington

The town crowned him a ‘favorite son’

Until they viewed his mouth at work

Alt-truth from our ‘favorite jerk’.
