SEND IN THE CLOWNS

Meet the Bar at dVerse, and the theme
is “clowns”, a term which has certainly
changed in meaning since the last political
election in the U.S.  Somehow clowns aren’t
so funny any more!

***********************

I guess I’ll always wonder
just exactly why
some listened to “Send in the Clowns”
and thought it a political battle cry
they mounted up their bandwagon
and sure as adultery is sin
we all lazed on our couches
while they voted the monster in
it’s time to get off our arses
and show some sensible clout
by mail, by foot, by wagon train
let’s vote the clown out!

  1. I knew the second I read your comment, I had to read your poem. LOVE it! Think I prefer the wagon train way of transport. Pioneer Cowgirl at heart.
