A SAD CLOWN

 A smile on his face, frown lives underneath,

 Watch the children laugh at this simple clown on 
 The street.

 An entertainer of fun and laughs, for a small price 
 You pay,

 That's what you may think until his chuckle lures 
 You away.

 A clown of mischief, there's more to him than meets 
 The eye,

 When the sun goes, wicked and mean, he'll make 
 You scream.

 A sad clown indeed, covered under a mask of makeup, 
 A monster to be,

 He'll dance for you and maybe throw confetti around, 
 Kill, does this sad clown.

 Ride a small bike, juggle in the air, follow you  
 Through the park, death everywhere,

 Big, funny shoes, baggy pants not so neat, not just
 A clown, never want to meet.
                            Keith Garrett
