I am always a Christian first
I am then a proud father second,
I am a patriotic American third
And fourth I am a poet, I reckoned.
I am a humanitarian fifth
I am undoubtedly a caring person sixth,
I am a role model to all seventh
And eighth, I am a listener with problems to be fixed.
I am a gardener with a green thumb ninth
I am protector to all animals tenth,
I am a honest taxpayer eleventh
And twelfth, I am a boxer for my strength,
I am a well informed voter thirteen
Fourteen I am a unprejudiced man,
I am a good neighbor to all fifteen
Sixteen or further down my list, I am a Republican.
