The politics of barnstorming:
Stunt flying in carnival skies,
country fairs and starry eyes.
Political speeches, theatrical lies,
white teeth lectures in pomade disguise.
Parachute jumping into alien towns,
tall tale faking and face painted frowns.
Sympathetic grunting and reflective sounds,
all of these abound in barnstorming grounds.
Send in the clowns.
Note: I took the photo of the red bi-plane at the Wide Bay International Airshow 🙂 There is nothing much better than a red bi-plane.
