Led by Some Clowns: A Satirical Poem

Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.


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 heads quite hollow.
