Modern-Day Clowns

By Gary Barton
O’ tis the sound of our modern-day clowns
Turning the country upside down

Juggling jokes to reach out a vote
Magniloquent words we cannot note

Wearing their drivel like a morning dress
Twirling away, leaving off their mess

Performing on stage, pulling all the stops
It’s hard to predict who’ll come up on top

They made us laugh, but we feel some sorrow
Knowing that they’re our leaders of tomorrow
