Trump’s nemesis beamed from the stage
while she simmered with well-suppressed rage.
The unkind dialectic
seemed purely synthetic;
results will be harder to gauge.
imperial cavalcade with Roman horns, eagle standards raised;
ALL HAIL !
Ye screen-fed sacrificial citizens, seething simpletons and volatile voters: attend now, with republican fervor, tempered by democratic zeal, to the golden-tongued orator of our epoch, gallant guardian of American greatness, avatar of avarice, the Jeffersonian gentleman, anointed autocrat and Sultan of Swell, windswept Wazir of Wonderful, emissary of towering eminence in empire;
the Anti H-Rod: Donald J. TRUMP !
(Plebeians look up from their circus-bread for a second—)
And may Our Sovereign Savior & Almighty God
also bless his worthy opponent and adversary:
HILLARY (a.k.a H-Rod )
(Patricians murmur, nod and whistle; a few salute…)
