Hillary's Accent

I've been listening to Hillary Clinton lately. Mostly to hear her accent. I'm not talking about her church performance with a strange version of Southern. Just her regular speech.

She's from the Chicago area. I can hear it. But there's other stuff mixed in too. That figures, since she also went to Wellesley, went to Yale, was the first lady of Arkansas, and is now the junior senator from New York.

She has lived around the nation,
But those flat Midwestern vowels
Refuse to throw in the towel.
To me they sound great, and I howl
In admiration
