Trump has to go.
It doesn't matter who replaces him.
Even a clown might do better.

The clowns are interested.
They say, Leave it to us.
We'll make it fun for him.

We'll make him feel important.
They tweet: "The Circus is coming to Washington."
Posters everywhere.

The president wants to lead the parade.
A storm of tweets ensues.
"Ruler of the Free World to lead monster parade

Greatest show on earth
Greatest show ever on Earth
Greatest show since the dawn of time"

Even the dinosaurs would look small compared to this.
President Trump shows up.
The clowns treat him like royalty.

They make him wear a shiny top hat.
They let him drive the hook-and-ladder.
The sirens and horns are blaring.

It sounds like a foghorn.
The parade begins.
Elephants, and giraffes.

Marching bands.
Everyone is dizzy with joy.
Some fall down laughing.

Those clowns put on a great show.
The clowns have the names of congressmen.
Some of them are congressmen.

Ha, ha, ha.
The clowns have the names of CEOs.
Some of them are dressed like asses.

Ha, ha,ha. They are throwing candy.
The clowns have fog machines.
The fog rolls in.

Nobody can see their own faces!
Trump is blowing his horn.
He is blowing the foghorn.

Then there is silence.
Everything stops.
There is no sound except for a barking dog.

When the fog lifts Trump is gone.
The whole parade is gone.
Those clowns made it happen.

No more Trump.
Nobody left to be happy about that.
No more dream.
