Hillary Clinton Ambition


Hillary what great ambition
She wanted to be POTUS of the nation
She dreamed to be president
She ran grueling campaign
She knocked opponents in succession
She met finally with one remaining hurdle
A tough guy from her city of Chicago
His name Barack Obama
They ran neck to neck for a while
His slogan was 'Yes We Can'
He mesmerized the crowds
As the race progressed
He streaked ahead
He won the race
He won the prize
Hillary Clinton had her place
In history books
Her name will be engraved
As the first lady
Who almost reached the top

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
