Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.
Everything is changing. People are taking their comedians seriously, and the politicians as a joke.
-- Will Rogers
In a circus better known as earth
there are clowns known as leaders
this is just another story of their worth
merely for some laughs my dear readers.
Each and every clownish dude
well rehearsed to trigger laugh
with a role refined and shrewd
sometimes even looking tough.
Pretending is their main routine
earning them standing ovations
while they manage to stay clean
after so ably duping their nations.
And then there are all those acts
making them two-faced to the core
as they are signing those peace pacts
while keeping the world at brink of a war.
To have fun with all that bluffing
circus admission is always free
so is worrying, so is laughing
duped or able to clearly see.
As long as they pretend to lead
we can also pretend to follow
they are just a circus breed
with the head quite hollow.
