Abraham Lincoln

Not quite lacking tact,
he made a pact
so to enact
an idea thus racked –
it had been sacked!
His voice may have cracked,
but the idea he backed
as it was tracked
into a better tract,
no longer slacked
from the horrid act
of backing lacked.

Indeed,
as he decreed,
there was a need
to intercede,
and so he agreed
that to Congress he’d plead
to plant a seed
and thus to lead
the nation in creed.
By enacting the deed
allowing slaves to be freed,
he caused some to secede.
