The Wrong and Violent Type

For a man
who craves attention

at all times

no matter the cost
and especially if there is a cost

to what could loosely be called
a reputation

it may be notable

that Donald Trump
has only just begun airing

general election television ads.

Maybe soon
we'll finally get to see the man

being completely comfortable
in his own skin.

In this controlled environment
the candidate

should have no problem
with demonstrating his self-declared "single greatest strength"

of "temperament."

(Just as long
as any speaking parts
are removed before airing.)
