Chance the Gardner

There once was a gardener named Chance,
That through coincidence to the White House advanced,
Played by Peter Sellers in the movie “Being there”,
Originally a comedy; now looks like an historic affair,
As I look around at the ins and outs in the oval office,
There is a decline of original thought, no more promise,
It is sad to see an empire fall apart within a short spell,
The all place falling apart going down directly to hell,
Chance the gardener was a comedy, a parody, fun,
The reality is not a comedy; there are no laughs, none,
