"WAITING FOR MUELLER"...a Tragicomedy (with apologies to Playwright Samuel Beckett)

The story in which 2 characters, Vladimir & Donald wait for the arrival of someone named Mueller who never arrives...or it just seems that way.

Two lost souls; one suicidal by Coke, the other likes Wodka!

A COUNTRY ROAD AT EVENING NEAR A TREE WITH NO LEAVES.

VLAD

Why are you wandering?

DONALD

Nookie.  You?

VLAD

Nerve Gas.

DONALD

Keep walking!

ALONG THEIR JOURNEY THEY CROSS PATHS WITH THE DONKEY & ELEPHANT.

DONALD

Pretend you don't see them.

VLAD

Ha - piece a Babka.

DONALD

Same here - 'President of Donald'...I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue & shoot som...

VLAD

I know, I know - but I did!

WEARY, THEY STOP TO SIT ON A TREE STUMP.

VLAD

Describe this Mueller fellow we're looking for.

DONALD

Well, he has hair, damn it & he's a Third.

VLAD

A third of what?

DONALD

His father & grandfather have the same name...how boring.

VLAD

Your son...

DONALD

Oh, Mr. DirtonHillaryIloveit son?

VLAD

Ha ha.  Ah, children - we have Siberia for that!

DONALD

Hey - you were supposed to make Hillary win ...I just wanted the publicity.

VLAD

Who cares!

DONALD

I care - Melania sewed my Fly shut; all my pants!

VLAD

Your Family Jewels are safe with me.

DONALD

And, my Rubles?

VLAD

Yes & the Pee Pee Tape.

DONALD

I knew you'd be someone I could trust - do I have great instincts or what!

VLAD PULLS OUT A FLASK & OFFERS DONALD A SWIG.

DONALD

Well, I don't usually...

VLAD

...You wanna be a Dick or a Dictator?  To Life...Terms!

DONALD

Yes, to Life Terms or The Wall ...whichever comes first!

AS NIGHTFALL DESCENDS ON THESE TWO DOWNTRODDEN ULTRA-RICH MEN; THERE'S ONE THING THAT PERSISTS...

...NO SIGN OF Godot or Mueller!
