tale of two sets of clowns…

tomorrow
the circus
will come to town
but
there’ll be no clowns
for
many
have taken jobs
in the movies
playing
sinister characters
who crawl
from
dark spaces
with
rather
unfriendly faces
scaring
little children
who alas
wet their beds
when left
alone
without
a nightlight
others
have found
similar jobs
in
washington
scaring
the hell
out of us all
with
the same
unfortunate
biological response

flynn and comey departures…

the brown bag prophet
was drawing
a picture
of
what
he
was sure
was the new
oval office door
when
he said
now
why would
mueller
want to question
what’s his name
whatever
he would say
on
whatever day
would
be denied
or
claimed
to be
a gross misrepresentation
of
the initial lie
seems
to me
mueller
could save some time
and
tax payer dollars
by
making up the answers
himself
it would be
more far factual
than
the answers
contrived
by
the guy
tweeting
from
the oval office

complaint…

the people
of
the united states
bring forth
the following causes of action
and
allege the following
one
plaintiffs
are
everyman
and
reside in everytown
two
defendants
are
elected officials
and
at the time of this complaint
were
residents
of
corporate purchased seats
of
government
three
on
or about
december 19th
2017
the plaintiffs’ contract
for
helping constituents
and
representing
the
interests of
their districts and constituents
was
egregiously broken
plaintiffs
bring forth
the following counts
and
allegations
supporting their cause of action
count 1
negligence
defendants
failed to perform
the duties
of office
in a safe and effective manner
leading to

and
national debt and well-being
damages
wherefore

in the amount
of
the defendants’ salaries
and
corporate kickbacks
with
attorney fees
and
court costs

return policies…

there will be
no
refund
for the
unused
or
wasted days
of
your life
no credit
will be given
for
random actions
of kindness
that
were inconsistent
with the
normal wear and tear
of
your daily existence
nor
will
the original
vigor
and
vitality
of
your youth
be returned to you
under
any
circumstances
further
had you read
with
far
more care
the initial documents
provided
by
your parents
you would have noted
in
bold print
buyer beware
of
life’s offerings

love jihad…

i
found myself
confronting
the brown bag prophet
when
i noticed
he had a sign
reading
purity matters watch who you marry
i said
how could you promote
such a racist theme
he said
this has nothing
to do
with race
or
religion
well perhaps
religion
since politics
is really
the new religion
in our nation
surpassing all morals
purported by the standard set
of
spiritual themes
you see
the prophet
said
there’s a new jihad
a
love jihad
where innocent democrats
are marrying
republican jihadists
trained
at secret locations
like
mar-a-largo
they’re taught
to use their sexuality
to
convert these love-sick puppies
into becoming
well
members of this new political sect
where
all human values
and
interests
are replaced
by
a blind obedience
to
the political party head
by the way
would you care
to make
a donation

diamond head…

after picking up
a few
groceries items
for
aunt bea
i stopped
to
drop them off
when
i arrived
aunt bea
was watching
an old game show
on
her
new
smart televisions
since
after years
of
loyal service
the old one
according to her
finally
left office
and
was replaced
by
what
she said
brings to mind
the new class
of
politicians
in
washington
with
a
colorful surface
but
very shallow
since
i hadn’t seen
the game show
diamond head
before
i asked her
what was it  about
aunt bea
said
well
candidates
answer a few questions
and then
the winner
qualifies
to
enter a chamber
and
grab
as much
of
the corporate sponsor’s money
as they can
during
their stay
in
the chamber
makes one
think
of folks
in
washington
doesn’t it

governmental affairs…

one of these mornings
i’m
not
gonna wake up
the condition
i believe
is
called
death
other than
the precise data
regarding
the hour
nature
and
conditions
of
the body
at
that moment
little
has been
documented
regarding
the
agenda
and
provisions
following
death
this seems
to me
to be
an oversight
by
whomever
or
whatever
controls
governmental affairs
of
the afterlife
well
now
there’s
an assumption
afterlife
you see
we have
no solid evidence
or
personal testimony
of
that state
of
soulful residency
of course
this
makes appropriate
preparation
difficult
if
not
impossible
therefore
i believe
that
the government
should
petition
the powers to be
to provide
said
information
before
we
the citizens
have to
participate
further
our
elected officials
should
go first
to establish
appropriate
representation
with
the new administration
