Where they Buried George Washington.

Where They Buried George Washington

You who came from Washington, tell me,
where did they bury General Washington?
Was it in the District of Columbia where they buried him,
with his toes pointed towards the George Washington River,
or was it underneath a cherry tree in Rosa Park's Park?

There is a clothes store named after him, a library,
and a school, all within a twenty mile radius.
Further down,

a laundry mat that is selling
detergent for half-price off. Today is Abe Lincoln's birthday,
and the candy store is selling bubble gum for a penny.
