For the benefit of Mr. Kite
There will be a show tonight on trampoline
The Hendersons will all be there
Late of Pablo Fanques Fair-what a scene
Over men and horses hoops and garters
Lastly through a hogshead of real fire!
In this way, Mr. K. will challenge the world!

    The Democrats have announced the lucky 20 clowns who made the cut and will make political balloon animals in their nomination circus. The televised debate will air during prime time in a few weeks.+++
    And when friendly fire takes out most of them, leaving what will remain still be un-electable, Madame Beast will ride in to save the day. Don’t know why the pubes didn’t do something about safeguarding the Vote when they had the chance. Man, looking at that line up…these are really profoundly stupid times we are living in.

    Pete the Bugger.
    …and this is just the beginning. We’ll be awash in this shit for the next year and a half.
    It’s gonna’ be like A clockwork Orange. We’re strapped in with our eyelids clipped open. No. Escape.
    Give me something to be sick in.

    As a McGill University alumnus I suspect the sugar cubes were brought to the party by Dr. Hank the drummer.

    Just like the buskers and traveling showmen of old, the Democratic who rises to the top will be outrageous enough and clownish enough to sell us the medicine (Socialism). Or else he will be a suited offering as flat and unappealing as possible. Like Biden. Mr MeToo, in reverse. Anyone else see the irony in that?
