The Advisor

Today's the birthday of a quite well-known man
Who's always seemed to have at hand a better plan
Having served now under several presidents
Henry Kissinger has been the diplomat without a bent

Even though the men he served directly were both Republican
His expertise in foreign relations must be seen as non-partisan
Winning the Nobel Peace Prize for ending war in Viet-Nam
And was a major player in the cease-fire in Palestinian land ...

And has now written several books on foreign policy
As well as two volumes of memoirs for us to read
Perhaps ... the man really is bigger than life ...
But, possibly ... it's just the way he's been typed ...
