McKinley By Any Other Name Would Still Be As Steep

          Ohio’s in denial
Of Denali’s new old name, 
          But Alaska never asked ya
To the mountain-naming game. 
          McKinley? Well, to win he
Had to but be nominated— 
          And he didn’t visit it an’
Then he got assassinated. 

          As best as I have guessed,
Appeals will only meet denial; 
          So Denali’s name will prolly
Be Denali for a while— 
          Till plenty-a millennia
Have rolled on by and then… 
          Some politician gets his wish an’
Claims it once again.
