Saturday commute cxx: Hue and cry on the hustings

   We appreciate a species
   that strives to please 
   by affirming its breeding 
   and learning. The present 
   campaigns in American pol-
   itics, I regret to suspect,
   portray the same instinct,
   with the same foundations.

   Unnerving similarity in
   them all ought to be dis-
   turbing; their astounding
   appearance of distance
   from us is rather chasten-
   ed by an easy question ..

   Who ignored them so long?
