Clancy, my Fictitious friend.
C. J. Black©β
While out enjoying our daily constitutional just shooting the breeze
Fictitious Clancy turned to me and with consummate ease
Said out of the blue – It’s a Barnum and Bailey world as the saying goes
With the clowns running the whole empire – ring leaders are definitely no shows
They are pushing us poor urchins to the limit
In fact – There’s a Sucker Born Every Minute
That’s not me expounding on this fact I’ll have you know
Listen to any news bulletin or watch any live T.V. debate show
It really is the inmates running the asylum
Ask any down and out or any skid row bum.
I’d like to take a straw poll for pig iron if nothing else
Just to prove this point –
That people are now watching soaps as for truth they delve
It’s getting very hard to decide what fact is and what fiction is
Appears to me we are being lead by those moguls running show bizz
We are just the extras in this black comedy called life
Existing it should said on pig swill and on strife
Once they (the leaders) can keep us from rebelling they are sure to always hold the upper hand
While we continue to grumble under our breath and struggle through quick sand!
When Fic gets on his high horse there’s no telling which road his utterances will take
I can never argue with his out bursts – you may if you can find an error or mistake.
So from myself and Fictitious Clancy until next we meet – remember the show must go on
It’s getting close to that time when we must sing our swan song.
