I liked this Quora column that I found last night on “If Trump’s Campaign Was A Poem What Poem Would It Be.” I don’t think the equivalent has come up for Clinton’s campaign yet, though I could be wrong….
One suggestion that came up: “The Hollow Men” by T.S. Eliot. It starts:
We are the hollow men
We are the stuffed men
Headpiece filled with straw. Alas!
Our dried voices, when
We whisper together
Are quiet and meaningless
As wind in dry grass
Or rats’ feet over broken glass
In our dry cellar
I’d like to post more right now (the dailies, etc) but the day was crazy and I need sleep. Sweet dreams.
