Surely, You Jest!

I’m off to get retraining
In matters entertaining,
So I can work the circuit at the fair.
My previous engagement,
A suitable arrangement,
Turned out a catastrophic bit of fare.
I hesitate to mention,
I broke the new convention
And did a bit the fair would not condone.
I wasn’t quite discerning
In what I did concerning
The man who sits atop the gilded throne.

The present situation,
For those of my vocation,
Constrains us from a mocking word or deed,
About the politicians,
In loftiest positions,
Whose playbook is the latest leftist creed.
So further education,
And mental reformation,
Is on the docket for my chosen trade.
And when we have been bettered,
Our presentations fettered,
We once again can join the clown parade.

  1. Another good one! Hw could I have overlooked it before?

    I for one would love to hear from you on Obama-Putin and Syria and the Terrorist Attack -- or whatever it was -- that occurred yesterday at our Naval base at the District of Columbia that left 12 people dead -- `13 if you count the gunman (I can't, sorry. Such a creature is not really human) and the several others who were wounded.

    Something to look forward to, perhaps?
