To be read in the voice of Ed Grimley.
Making America great again sounds like a wonderful idea, I must say. I should have thought of it myself.
(Toothy, quizzical, shame faced grin.)
Greatness just seems . . . so grand, you know?
(Dances to the right. Dances to the left.)
I'm giving some serious thought,(tilts noggin, scratching.) to voting for Donald Trump.
I'm really in favor of making America great, I must say, and if anyone can do it, Donald Trump would be someone who should be given every voter's . .
. I mean, he's a casino owner, don't you know, and he gives people money every day.
I wish I were that rich. Imagine being so rich that your business is giving away money!
(Dances back and forth, stopping suddenly.)
I wouldn't give all the money away, I must say. I would save some to buy the groceries and get the car washed.
I hope Donald Trump is elected, I must say. It would be wonderful if everyone was rich like Donald Trump. We all could have lots of servants. There
could be twenty servants for every American and that would be great.
I know that seems like a lot, but rich people always have a lot of servants. (Grimaces.)
Let me see. There are at least a million Americans, so we would need twenty million servants. We could get them from China. They have lots of people
and they would be economical too because the wages are not very high in China.
(Extends bended arms outward and prances around in a circle.)
America will be great when it is great again, I must say. All that money. All those servants.
(Looks off in a transport of delirium. Then recovers himself, looking a few feet in front of him, puzzled.)
I'm trying to remember the last time America was great.
(Scratches temple, looking upward, then suddenly joins his hands together in front of his heart, like a singing soloist, a toothy grin on his
I remember! In the 1950s, when I was little! Not that I've changed very much since then, I must say.
It was after WW2 and all the other countries were poor and we were rich. Everybody owed us money and we had so much money that we could even rebuild
Europe, and still have lots and lots of money to buy big cars that looked like space ships, I must say.
All because of WW2.
It was great. That was when America was great!
We had everything! (Gazes upward, smiling, delirious.)
. . . and now Donald Trump wants to make us great again! What a great idea, I must say.
All we need is for somebody to start WW3.
(Suddenly startled, concerned.)
Would that be a good thing? There would definitely be a danger of . . . personal injury, in another war, I must say.
Maybe using drones . . .
(Prances off to buy a Trump hat.)
