A Poetic Tribute to Lew's Loopy Signature

Editor’s Note: In what we can only hope will be the first of many doggerel posts, Editor at Large Tim Clark has come through with a piece of verse dedicated to the now-infamous signature of Jack Lew President Obama’s Treasury secretary nominee.

From Hamilton to Lew

Alexander the first must twist in his grave
To think that the dollar would be so depraved
As to feature the signature of Jacob. J. Lew
When no one comes close to guessing just who

Might scribble such squiggles and odd loop-de-dos!
Ne’er Treasury’s chief, says Alex’s muse,
And Obama, he too can scarcely believe
That his pick can’t write words that people can read.

So the Prez orders Lew to clean up his act
To penmanship school he orders him back
Clear writing means clear thinking, of that he is sure
And no Secretary of his will sign so impure!
