The Clowns Are Here

I am discouraged and despondent over the election results. Never in my most awful dreams did I think that so many of my fellow Americans would actually choose a Donald Trump as the president of the United States of America, this office that we have revered as this country’s most honored representative of our nation. It is not the country I thought I lived in.

Clearly my nearly 89 years have been spent in some sort of bubble: a different set of values, with admiration for our Founding Fathers and what I thought was reason as my guide. Now what?

I am reminded of that haunting Judy Collins song:

“I thought that I thought what you thought,

sorry my dear.

Losing my timing like this so late in my career;

Send in the clowns,

there ought to be clowns;

Don’t worry, … they’re here.”

Bill Thomas
