Led by Some Clowns: A Satirical Poem
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
for we are all a circus breed
heads smart---yet hollow.
