Last of the Original Cast

He was the Prime Minister and President,
He was the last one, when all else went,
I remember him, always being there,
With fire in his words, in his eyes a flare,
As a visionary, he was hated by the right,
As a conformist, he gave the left a fright,
Now he is gone, at ninety three, the last,
Shimon Peres the last of the original cast.
