Dust Devil

The strong, wise woman in white faced the weak, blustering orange man.

She spoke words of experience and inclusion, mostly true.

He spoke mostly lies, mostly incoherently, sometimes hatefully, often angrily.

She appealed directly to us, to our better nature, and to the ideals voiced by our government's founders.

He went low, bellowing like an out of control bull.

The nation listened, and -- holding their noses and crossing their fingers -- decided to vote for a better collective future.
