The Peter Principle

He was too late to the party.
P.T. had already done it —
built the circus, conned the
people into believing, enter-
tained the crowds, got famous,
made money — received the
desperately desired love
and produced the Greatest
Show on Earth. This Johnny
Come Lately just came lately,
too late, so what did we
do? We elevated him when he
wasn’t half bad as a T.V.
reality show host, where he
should have stayed and now,
the poor guy, the J-C-L
probably will be Jail
Come Lately where he can
con the cons.
