Entertainment



The old three-ringed circus, of days gone by,

a likening of our congress, we see today,

The big-topped attractions, for public appeal,

as the clown acts go on, in their display.




Three rings, beneath the lights, are placed,

under a big tent, and right in the center of it all,

The common people sit, as if to be hypnotized,

every person, so much, to be enthralled.




The trapeze artist, tight rope walker,

and clowns all perform, each to be so exact,

As the spotlight falls on ring number one,

the lion tamer cracks a whip in his act.




The bill before congress, a tough one to pass,

Some, to end up being placed on the shelves,

Many are afraid to go here, and to trespass.

looking at no backing, to protect themselves




The spot light falls on ring number two,

there, a magician pulls a rabbit from his hat,

A burrow, hee-haws, while trotting about,

as an elephant trumpets loudly, on the mat.




As a tight rope walker, takes a cautious step,

in balancing the budget, and is overdrawn,

The trapeze artist, he entertains one and all,

cleverly changing hands, in mid-flight's song.




When the spot light shines on ring three,

twenty-six clowns make an exit from a car,

One falls down in the floor, silly clown,

while taking sips, from his open fruit jar.




The audience laughs, at the clown as he slips,

and as his pants, then to catch on fire,

a big flower pops out, from his colorful lapel,

and then, as he pretends, to expire.




Three ringed circus, that entertains us all,

as we munch popcorn, and sip from our drinks,

An avoidance in attending, to troubles at hand,

To be so lighthearted, as each one, so thinks,




To be put on grand display, for a public at large,

as congress does, in cessions, to so perform,

Dealing with the needs, making the laws of the land,

all appears for the best, and seems, the norm.

      Thanks midget, Yep, I agree and it seems we always fall for it each election year, although sometimes it does seem that regardless of who we vote for, the man or woman, who is so chosen will be placed in the powerful position. It seems to be a great social affair and partying of sorts, and do you think many really care who wins, I don't think so at times.

      Politics is always a three-ringed circus, entertaining at best, damaging at worst. Powerful, whonunuwho.

      Has anyone wondered about the elections and congress in the country and what we all look like in reality?

      Thanks Bill, I wanted to include pictures of a circus and congress in conjunction, but alas, I had none.
