Content And Continuity

Constant nonsense.
Absent of content.
The continuity addresses a mindlessness,
As if sought by all.
To stall and prevent,
Any presence of common sense.

And the many who express,
Being annoyed by those they choose...
To believe,
Intentionally annoy others...
Purposely to accomplish this to achieve,
Also accuse them of thinking...
With the audacity,
To appear as if the doing is effortless.
Even alone with no one watching.
Bragging about how easy to think is,
In public.
Just to hear the applause.
And some who stand quietly in shock.
With jaws dropped in awe!

'What's going on?
You look as if you have seen a ghost.'

'I saw something,
You would not believe.
I stood and listened to a politician,
Speaking the truth clearly with content.
And had such fluid continuity,
Without any signs of being controlled...
Like a puppet manipulated by strings.
None were attached to be pulled!'

'Will you stop lieing like that.
A politician?'

'I kid you not.
And I was not the only one,
Standing as close as possible...
To the podium where he spoke.
Looking for strings or some other device,
Like a remote being used.
Then he stopped to ask if anyone there,
Had questions.'

No way.'

'Yes way.
And believe this or not,
People just stared.
Unable to move.'

What happened?'

'He then had his assistant,
Help him put on this clown costume.
He then put on this clown mask.
And got into this black limousine.
Loudly saying, TAKE ME BACK TO D.C.'


'That's what is baffling and amazing.
At the same time.
When most clowns are leaving D.C.
After duping to hoodwink folks.'

Either this clown has fresh new jokes.
Whoever this politician is,
Will guarantee...
The last laugh will be,
Consistent with content.
And undeniably his.
Reeking with continuity.
The kind this clown ain't joking about!'

'That's scary.'

'For you?
For many?
This will be the first time a clown,
Was actually a clown running for office.
And dressed up to impress publicly,
To tell the truth for what truth is to be.'

'How crazy can sick get?'

'That question has been asked,
Since I was a child.
And I am beginning to believe,
People are hoping...
The more madness they contribute,
To this sickness?
One day this craze will be the rage!'

'One day?
That day has been here doing back flips.
Twerking and doing the limbo on pulpits!'


'After mesmerized folks,
Have done the money walk.'

'The what?'

'Check out the content.
And the continuity of that content.
For what it is not to hide from it.
Or deny its existence.
The order and odor of it is potent!

'The what of...huh?'

'Sit back. Relax.
And divorce from the fiction.'


'Be aware. Wide-eyed and conscious.
Listen to hear.
With attention paid to give it.'
