Grover Cleveland Haiku

All presidents have

Secrets, but few more so than

Cancer surgery

125 years ago today, Grover Cleveland discovered a concerning spot in his mouth swiftly leading to super secret jaw surgery to remove a cancerous mass. How secret was it? The public didn’t find out about it until 1917, nine years after Cleveland’s death. Thus the most reliable people in history: his doctors.

Other fun facts about Cleveland: he had an out-of-wedlock baby scandal during his campaign, he is the only president to have served two non-consecutive terms, he is the only president to have married while in office (to a 21-year old), and is ranked by historians as ‘pretty OK’.
