My take on the show that is politics!

The Circus Comes to Town

Just sit back and enjoy the greatest show on cable

Try to keep your popcorn down; that is if your able

Clowns dressed up like politicians, amaze us all

With their unbelievable-sounding stories, mostly tall

Yes, they tell unbelievable stories; through the megaphone of the press

Just what is the truth, is anybody's guess

Flying bulls**t fills the circus air

And a clown who tells the truth is extremely rare

Once you're seated, there's no money back

"Dance with the clown who you bought," is sadly the fact;

The motto of the lobbyists who seek to entertain

With the untruths they tell, and over load your brain

Next, come the jugglers, and they juggle truth

Tell you who to vote for, and what you should do

About the problem of one side or the other,

Until you're so mad; "Get those mothers!"

They sell a fantasy; nothing to do with reality

"If you want it the right way, vote for me!"

Congress is turned into a three-ringed tent,

Where clowns run the show, who scream about what they really meant!
