Led by Clowns: a Satirical Poem
In a circus known as Earth
there are clowns known as leaders
this is story of their worth
just for laughs, my dear readers.
Each and every clownish dude
well rehearsed to make us laugh
with a role refined and shrewd
sometimes even looking tough.
Pretending is their routine
getting them standing ovations
while they manage to stay clean
after duping their whole nations.
Funniest of all their acts
that makes them two-faced to their core
is signing all those peaceful pacts
while keeping world at a brink of war.
As they can read each other's bluffing
circus admission is free
and so is worrying, so is laughing,
so how serious could all this be?
As long as they pretend to lead
we can pretend to follow
for we are all a circus breed
with heads so smart, and yet so hollow.
