Monkeys, Elephants & Clowns – Oh my!

Mock Circus Ad
The day before the presidential inauguration, I learned that  Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey planned to fold their tents. No more traveling acrobats and animal acts. Where would the performers go? I envisioned a circus parading cross-country to Washington DC.

Nursing my sorrow over this year’s election results, I had a bit of fun tweaking an old circus advertisement. I wrote a companion poem and edited another poem that also seem to reflect my post-election angst.

The mock advertisement and animal-themed poems found a home in the #NotMyPresident series at Heavy Feather ReviewFind them here.
