Hillary and Trump: Why We Love and Hate Them

Hillary and Trump

The word has been out for quite some time,

they’re the most hated candidates yet.

With everyone pleading we must choose

Hillary or Trump are the two that rose to the top

as we try to think and delve.

The truth is out there for all to see;

they’re just further extensions of ourselves. Continue reading

But this day was different. Continue reading
