Presidents of the USA

When A Joke Made Me A Joker,
Van Held The Poker,
The Fiery Poker,
But Long John Grant Had Gone
And Chased His Crazy Mooses
‘Round The West Hollering,
“Can’t Help Rinse Those Empty Kettles Just Now Friend.”
‘Cause Ronnie Beat Commies Bad.


The U. S. Presidents in order. The first letter of each word corresponds to the first letter of the last name of each president. “Chased” and “Crazy” both refer to Grover Cleveland and represent his two split terms. I know that the plural of “moose” is “moose” not “mooses” , but that’s how it was taught to us.

The mnemonic has remained unchanged from “When” to “Friend” for quite a while now.
Obviously with new president change is required. I provide the official version, below include the most recent variations for our last five presidents.
