It was embarrassing.
I could see his lips move when I spoke.
And his jokes were simply atrocious.
But it’s the voice he gave me that was unforgivable.
A nasal whine that scared children and irritated adults.
But this is his last show.
And I feel his warm tears fall on my face.
I know he’s a good man.
But the world has outgrown him.
The end of a ventriloquist.
