The Rushmore Tree

The Rushmore Tree

You may think I’m idiotic
Or possibly psychotic.
It was definitely exotic
And slightly Patriotic,
When I found that tree.

I was off to the early races
While counting out my paces,
When I came upon the faces
That had left familiar traces,
On the Rushmore tree.

There were only two upon it,
Right along the side. Dog gone it!
As artistic hands had drawn it,
Or a chainsaw dude had sawn it
On that Amazing tree

First was Jefferson’s noble chin,
That displayed a friendly grin,
Then his profile was filled in.
His curly hair was held within
That gnarly old tree

If you haven’t heard enough, Sir
Believe I’m not a slougher
But Washington was tougher
‘Cause the bark around was tougher
On that Rushmore tree

So let your imagination fly!
Just look for the mouth and eye
That is gazing at the sky.
You might see him if you try!
That’s the Rushmore tree.
