Jesse James Cornett



Jesse James Cornett

Born in 1884.
Lied to get into the Army.
Spanish American Veteran you were as well as through WWII.
Loan sharked to get money for dental school,
Wound up in West Point you did.
Proud of the loan sharking you were not.
A Lt. Colonel you became.
Life lessons many you taught to me and can claim.
A Kentucky woodsman you were.
Talking of barefoot summers and stonebruises.
Thanfulness to my parents I shoud be for having shoes all year round.
Jesse James Cornett DDS Lt. Colonel, West Point Grad,
How sad,
More do not know about you.
I promise to tell others so your life is not adieu.
A great and honorable man you were and are in heaven,
Those on earth shall hear from me about you all days seven!
