Congratulations, you did your homework, and so much more here... to earn a big win by this a clever work of poetry which is so humorous and helps us to laugh it off for the time being, and most of us I think we really are in need of some comic relief after so much with these two candidates have shown us, that aren't attributes...despite the days are winding down for our Country to choose which of these two will assume a place as President in the White House, but maybe not in our hearts. Also, hope to read your entire author notes in the days to come.

Thanks for sharing...Caresa_08

    Hi Caressa. Thank you for your very nice review and comments as well as fabulous rating. Yes, this is a very important election. Americans have an awful lot riding on it. Our country won't be the same after it's over regardless of who wins. Marilyn

Hello fellow news junkie. I thought that I already read and reviewed this, guess not.
You wrote a fair and balanced contest entry contrasting the two candidates.

Congratulation's on a well earned win.

Wow, Marilyn! Congratulations! A deserving win for a powerful, well written, description of the shocking mess of our world, and potentially Earth-life as we know it - self-destroying in egotistic hubris of mankind! And, Trump is certainly not leading from behind; although many of see Australia having come from way behind in the 1960's, now only trailing America's lead unstoppable plunge through hell into a black hole of no escape!

Well done, Marilyn, a saddening world reality - reflecting on my challenges and eventual decision as to whether FanStory is the road to eternity for me! Having eagerly paid for such privilege and hopes, I fell in my fourth black hole this year! And sitting here, accepting the only answer to my cries are, `I don't understand you!' - as support walks on by - I shall enjoy my holidays before deciding where love lies - and can grow and flow creatively through my transiting seasons on Earth and into eternity.

Thank you for the courageous, self expressive sharing, Maureen*&*

    Hi Maureen. Please tell me what you are saying. Are you taking a break from the site? In my humble opinion, poetry is the venue for you. You shine with your poetry. Clarity is the most important thing for people to appreciate our work. If reviewers are saying they don't understand, strive for clarity. That is what is so good about poetry, it challenges us to be concise and clear. Some poetry is not clear to me. It almost seems as if the poet is daring me to understand. My philosophy is that if it is important enough to write about, it's important enough to state it clearly. I hope you will hang in there with the site. Hugs, Marilyn

    Hi Marilyn, I'm loving to feel you compassion and interest.

    Yes! And no! I actually `fell in a black-hole on FanStory more than a week ago now - asked for help and got `I don't understand you', and so - it's become space to understand and find clarity myself. Certainly nothing to do with reviews, both ways those are the real gift for me - and why I am surprisingly happy just to let go, let God until after my holidays - mid September and spring here. Thanks so much for your hugs, thoughts, and caring, Maureen*&*

Yes, never in my voting life have I heard so much redirick. I am voting for Trump because Hilary has proven she can not be trusted. When she treated lives lost with such unconcern, I'll never vote for her. Trump mouths, but so did Truman and he always said the 'buck stopped with him.' I believe it did so I'm hoping that Trump will do the same.

    Hi rockinm. Thank you for your review of my poem. Harry Truman was Democrat who wins a gold star for his presidency. Hillary has been in politics all of her adult life and is connected with scandal after scandal, questionable Wall Street deals, tightly bound with Wall Street even now, failure to aid Benghazi victims and lying straight-faced to the families of the victims, illegal unsecured server in her basement, the pay for play Clinton Foundation. It goes on and on and on. Most voters for Hillary are too young and/or uninformed to know or care about her history. The buck stopped with Truman and will with Trump, but it will never stop with her. Why? Because the liberal press will always get her bacon out of the fire and give her a pass--as the FBI and Justice Department have done. Shame on all of them.

Congratulations on your solid win--your notes alone deserved first place! I was surprised to tie for third place with my tiny rant. You certainly captured both candidates in your poem and found a clever caricature of them to accent your appealing rhymes. Here's to a decent voter turnout! -Joan

    Thank you, Joan. We are in big trouble in this country. People are so unaware, it's pitiful. Congratulations on your win, too. I liked your senryu because we must exercise our right to vote. Marilyn

FANTASTIC!!! This is a really intelligently written poem that's also very creative and clever. The rhyming is really great and unforced. The poem is also a like a short story. The analogies and descriptions are perfect. Really nice job, keep up the good work. Best of luck in the contest.

This poem, rant, on the the current political circus, Hilary and the Donald, covers a lot of ground with your rapid fire terms (thanks for the definitions). The mono-rhymed stanzas and on target observances make for an interesting and entertaining read.

A pretty good summary of events so far, judging from the news of this soap opera that seeps through the news media into Australian homes.

This is a very well written political rant. I rant everyday... wish it did some good. However, maybe yours will do good by winning the contest. Great job and thanks for sharing this with us. Gramalot
