He called it an “evil empire” They thought he was crazy
They said he acted like the cowboy. They thought he was crazy
Europe (minus the British government) thought he would start a third world war. They thought he was crazy
They called him a big mouth who knows nothing in politics. They thought he was crazy
Leftists hated him because he had “moral clarity”. They thought he was crazy
Europeans, peaceniks, and pacifists thought that the devil turned into a cowboy. They thought he was crazy
Today, Baroness Margaret Thatcher bowed before him.
Former foe turned friend Gorbachev came to say goodbye to him
A young soldier with a blown up hand saluted him
Eastern Europeans leaders came to pay tribute to him
People who never knew him discovered that he didn’t turn out to be crazy after all
Rest in peace Ronald Reagan.
N.B. I hope George W. Bush would be alive when we discover that he too didn’t turn out to be crazy after all.
