"A Better Person"

Long ago I learned it
Nobody on this Earth is 
That's for certain

Trump and Approach Are Superficial

Started at beginning and point that is initial,
His approach and appearance are superficial;
Trouble up stirred,
With each word;
Statements Trump made had been prejudicial.

too affirming reactionary.
