George meets the Mere Leader –
“George welcomed him with his usual grace,
Soothing words and smiling face,
But response there was none, no reaction at all,
No high-flown speech, no honeyed words,
But merely a touch of the outstretched hand
As if George were some lackey of the land
Come to pay homage to his lord.”
The Presidential candidate –
“Outside on the street was a curious sight,
A double-decker bus, open to the sky,
And festooned with banners, placards and the like,
Promoting a presidential candidate.
And standing on the top the man himself,
Waving to a appreciative audience,
The would-be president and national leader,
The young and personable Senator Sobama.”
