Evidently the 2016 Electoral College was really the Electoral Clown College -- the Trump Circus won and continues to this day.
As a result, the world is laughing at us. People in Finland are mocking us with pictures of Finnish raking squads.
In other news, Trump scorned the Navy seal team that brought down Osama bin Laden, and Ivanka is conducting official government business with her personal email.
When will this clown show end?
Hmm. With the recent Blue Tidal Wave in congress, maybe this will all end sooner than later?
Of course, all of this calls to mind Emmett Lee Dickinson's poem, "On this long storm a Blue Wave rose" (below on the left). His poem inspired third cousin Emily to pen her poem "On this long storm the Rainbow rose" (below on the right).
By Emmett Lee Dickinson:
On this long storm a Blue Wave rose –
On this late month – we won –
The Clowns – like feckless Elephants –
Ineptly – struggled on –
The Rest rose smiling, in their beds –
The votes – indeed were won –
Rejoice, how needful was the prize –
On whom the wave crashed down!
The energizing draw of breath –
At Daybreak – was robust –
The blue – Resistance principles
Did awaken us!
By Emily Dickinson:
On this long storm the Rainbow rose –
On this late morn – the sun –
The Clouds – like listless Elephants –
Horizons – straggled down –
The Birds rose smiling, in their nests –
The gales – indeed were done –
Alas, how heedless were the eyes –
On whom the summer shone!
The quiet nonchalance of death –
No Daybreak – can bestir –
The slow – Archangel’s syllables
Must awaken her!
