The First Great Debate

From "The Greatness Game"
A Work in Progress

This is an op-ed poem commenting on the first Presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton last night, Sept. 26, 2016.

Did you see how Prince Donald’s hand was trembling
when he raised his glass for a sip?
Did you see him licking dry lips?
No one can blame a contender for greatness
for tremoring nerves when votes are at stake.
But his opponent, the Duchess, formerly Queen,
held her nerves in admirable check.
All the way through the first great debate,
focused and cool, she set records straight,
appearing much better prepared than her rival
to be Commander-in-Chief of a nuclear state.

Good observations of his shaking and nervousness.
His arrogance and privilege showed with his lack of preparation - a teacher's first requirement is to prepare. Hillary nailed him on that!!
