Way back in the day
A mayor’s folly could be found
In Ziegfeld Follies

    Now follies are everywhere and cheap. Nice Haiku Chris. The Mayor of New York popped into my head right away and then the visage of other mayors and their major follies begging coming to mind.

      Thank you, Daniel.

      There was a 1950s film with Bob Hope called Beau James where he played a scandal and corruption plagued New York City mayor who was ironically called “Gentleman” Jimmy Walker.

      But the same follies can be applied to other mayors and even governors and even Presidents.

      • Hyperion said,

        This is most true Chris. I think this Haiku is also prophetic of the collapse into folly and foible of every major city as the leadership only knows how to lead the flock to poison water, polluted fields, and dens of wolves. And when we raise our voice to the Great Bumbler Chief (GBC) Biden the Hair Boner, we only get soggy diaper stories.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Yes, it’s raining hairs and diapers these days instead of raining cats and dogs.

      • Hyperion said,

        Kamala really needs to get behind Diaper Blowout Biden and take one for the team.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Thus showing that LBJ was very much underacting when he said, “The Vice-Presidency ain’t worth a bucket of warm spit.”

      • Hyperion said,

        Instead of words of wisdom and quotable quotes from our highest office of government, all we hear now is Brrrrrap! Sploof. Plop-ploop. “This is brown team 1. We need a clean up in the Oval Office. Bring a Depends and some duck tape.”

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Yes, no one would want these conversations recorded on a White House tape recorder or transcribed in a White House transcript.

      • Hyperion said,

        If this leaked out, (excuse the expression) Comedy Central would have a field day of festivities with new material to use. In the mean time Nancy Pelosi is borrowing Depends from her best boi Biden after learning the GOO was running for the Butthole-in-Chief position in 2024.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Seeing as how so many commercial products these days are using celebrity endorsements, it’s a wonder Depends hasn’t got Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi doing commercials for them.

      • Hyperion said,

        I think that would make millions more for the dirty bootie industry. Bumble Boy Biden (B3) could bend over and the camera could zoom in while a live blow out is occurring and then bounce back to the announcer. “As you can see, massive blow outs are caught in the side blow out panels while violent noxious fumes are filtered and vented upward inside the wearer’s shirt for hallway dissipation.” Cutaway to the halls of Congress where Biden and Nancy skip down the halls and everyone looks around with The Who farted look. Instant viral video as sales skyrocket.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        No wonder Dr. Anthony Fauci wears a mask. 😷

      • Hyperion said,

        Now we know the truth behind the mandatory mask. 🤣💨🤢😷

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        We do indeed. 😅😂🤣
