Early morning – it is dark outside
My computer screen glares open-eyed
A brand new page like virgin snow
Invites my Muse – where will it go?
I cast around for inspiration:
“Super Tuesday” is an irritation
Donald Trump makes headline news
As he holds such drama-ridden views.
Tough-talking Hillary gains votes;
Many candidates have burnt their boats
Press coverage by CNN
Is in your face – but let's stay Zen!
Republican or Democrat?
We're now a long way down the track
Americans have a troubled choice
A well-known name or a lone voice?
So what goes through Obama's mind?
In November he leaves all behind...
Meanwhile, he steers as best he may
As the World looks on – he can but pray!
