Who Would You Rather Have Leading The Nation?

by Dee Newman

Who would you rather have leading the nation
A devoted husband and father, or the
Vile, cigar-smoking personification
Of hedonism – of greed and gluttony;
A brilliant, soft-spoken conciliator
Who seeks consensus through negotiation,
Or the angry, bombastic competitor
Who thrives on rancor and intimidation;
A disciplined, visionary progressive,
Physically honed and responsible leader,
Or the loud, reckless, sarcastic, aggressive,
Physically unhealthy bottom-feeder;
         Someone with the audacity of hope,
         Or that of an arrogant misanthrope?
