I wrote this during the debate Tuesday evening. It took me about

3 minutes to write it ... but that was what I was sensing at the time.

President It

Dark, within It
Unknown, foreboding
It trudges along
Eyes wide open
But not willing to look
It's right before It
It's always there
The Dark
There are no smiles
Even along the way
It doesn't notice
A blooming flower
A doggie playing
An adorable baby
A sunrise, a sunset
Each day, the same
The Dark
It lives within itself
How will It end
Will there be light
No, it can't be
It's always the dark
The dark will follow It
No escape
That's all there is
Dark within It
