The Shakespearian tragedy is over

PEOPLE MONSTERS

The Don fights the Swamp — Swamp wins

Politics is an unpleasant but intriguing distraction, like catching a glimpse of a cockfight from a Greyhound bus window on the road to Nirvana.

American Daze Purple Haze saw enough of it to witness the heroics and insanity of the Trump era — riveting theater in which a non-politician took on the corrupt Establishment and knocked it on its politically correct ass. Many characters entered and exited from stage right, and there was much excitement and many shocking plot points. But in the end to no avail.

And now that it has ended and the chief protagonist has left the stage, American Daze Purple Haze has zero interest in hanging around the theater for the next play, a tedious farce with a hideous cast. In fact he’s so disgusted with the whole American spectacle he wants to change his name from American Daze Purple Haze to WhoGivesaRatsass.

As the new old actors enter from stage left, WhoGivesaRatsass leaves the theater and walks away and as he walks away there comes a skip to his step, quite comical it is to see him skipping on down the street, and now he’s running… running fast… and now he’s leaping in the air like Spiderman…

This is much more fun than bad political theater.
