Haha, Beth, thanks, you've improved it. I should have expected that.=========
mobocracy at work
The most interesting aspect of a Clinton Victory would be that to stay in office, she and her cabal would have to do the same in America as Erdogan is doing in Turkey: i.e. close down the free press, put 10s of 1000s of law officers in jail, ditto teachers unwilling to push Clinton propaganda, especially the climate fraud which, in the absence of a shooting war with Russia, she will have to use as justification for her totalitarianism.
Interesting times - the same civil war between fascists and democrats in the USA , in Europe and the Middle East. Putin has played a magnificent weak hand. As for the UK, it appears that the battle between our fascists, a conglomerate of the elite and the corrupt left, and the people is hinging on who calls for Brexit and whether the BBC can continue to act as the propaganda mouthpiece for the fascists. Thus one of the top fascists, David Attenborough, has called for Trump to be killed
Ayla. What does rule by "music of black origin" have to do with anything being discussed here?
With regard to the US election, all I can do is re-tense a small part of Max Ehrman's wonderful "Desiderata"
"And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe will unfold as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be.
And whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy"
kim, apologies, unintentional error ... serfs !

Truly Beth, I like your version better.
Correction is unnecessary, though it is quite kind,Now filtered serendipitously, through a poet's mind.
Now a technical note. I commonly run through the alphabet looking for the rhyme and the inspiration for the second line. As you can see, I'd made it to 't', and 'tall' was not satisfactory, to a perfect 'T.
Thanks again. We'll do it another time.==========
With pleasure, kim, and I'll double check
According to Wilkipedia Ayla means Earth,s Children.John Podestra has a nice warm hot tub waiting for them back at the ranch.
But after the the entertainment I don't fancy the cooking much.
Jamspid. Suggest you read it again. Ayla is the main character in a book series titled (in translation) "Earth's Children".Ayla is a turkish female name for "halo around the moon" - hence "Ayla: halo be her name".
Like a glove:
There are those whose role in life is to spread joy and happiness, and then there are others with darker souls who relish muck and rumour. Enjoy your life.
