Critiquing The Debate in #Poetry #OctPoWriMo 

The presidential debate Sunday night was one unlike we have ever seen before, according to most of the talking heads. Personally, it seemed a lot like many I have seen: lots fuzzy facts flying, insulting comments and questionable things being said – typical really. And no matter which candidate you support you would not be being truthful if you disagree on that.

I thought that I would comment on something that I rarely ever comment on using OctPoWriMo’s prompt “lively” to express my overall thoughts on the debate and campaigns in general.

A lively conversation
Intense words exchanged
How much truth
How much false
Time will tell

Intense words exchanged
Between two opponents
Rhetoric flying wildly

How much truth
Was mixed in with
Statistics and party-lines

How much false
Things contorted, distorted
Morphed into false-reality

Time will tell
What we all really know
The truth and citizens are the real casualties

Written in the trimeric form.
