Special Bonus Feature: "Hillary Clinton’s Acceptance Speech" by the Editor

Hillary Clinton’s Acceptance Speech
A Poem Found by Steven Wittenberg Gordon in the Fellowship of the Ring by J. R. R. Tolkien

In place of the Dark Lord
you will set up a Queen.
And I shall not be dark,
but beautiful and terrible
as the Morning and the Night!
Fair as the Sea and the Sun
and the Snow upon the Mountain!
Dreadful as the Storm and the Lightning!
Stronger than the foundations of the earth.
All shall love me and despair!

Editor's Note:  I usually make it a rule not to publish "found" poetry for reasons it would take an essay to discuss, but I just couldn't resist this one.  For a "hillary-arious" video of this, see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d8iydB3yu9w.
