Clinton Corral on the Press

We all know about the O.K.  Corral in Tombstone and the famous resulting gunfight
In the East a new corral, the Clinton one made of ropes, shows the paranoia of a candidate in plain sight
Walking down the middle of a street in Gotham her staff with ropes kept the press at bay
Optics that her penchant for secrecy and dishonesty will not allay
This woman is running or in her mind awaiting a coronation to the highest office of this land
How much longer can she demands to be available to the press withstand
If I were a member of the 4th Estate I would be shaking in my boots
A Hillary Presidency would plant the weeds of press suppression that would be hard to uproot
These reporters confined behind a moving rope are not paparazzi seeking to capture a revealing celeb shot
But political reporters trying to question a person who could be our next president who suffers from a perception of dishonesty rot
Optical images are everything and once again Hillary does not get a passing grade
What a joke, what a sense of arrogance during a Gotham 4th of July parade
The underlying issue today and in 2016 will be can our leaders be trusted
In Hillary’s case that is an issue that her record is flawed and fatally busted
