THE CLOWN AS KING
(1/8/13)


they speak

nothing
much
is said

they
are afraid
to say
exactly
what is on
their minds

they want
to be politically
correct

they don't
want to create
any public
relations
fiascos

to hurt
anyone's
feelings

all
very nice
but nothing
of substance
is communicated

they talk
around
the issues
hoping
that everyone else
will realize
what they really
want
to express

but
everyone else
has their own
agenda
and interprets
such vagueness
to their own
advantage

frustrating

frustrating
to the point
of depression

only
the comedians
can plainly
state the facts
as they
see them

they
are entertainers
so therefore
harmless

they
entertain us
with the truth
that we hear
nowhere
else
