I Saw A Circus Clown Today

I saw a circus clown today bend over and shine a moon
a smile plastered on his face for it was just past noon
next thing I see ten more appear taking clown one away
the crowd  rises and start to chant, yea, hooray, hooray

A smile plastered on his face for it was just past noon
he knew his destiny would be coming to an end soon
that did not stop him from performing every single day
problem was co-workers were claiming him to be gay

Next thing I see ten more appear taking clown one away
dismayed emotions dive deeply I begin feeling very gray
I go down in front of some administrator to pop a balloon
and told him point-blank that he looked terrible in maroon

The crowd rises and start to chant, yea, hooray, hooray
I bowed and walked away knowing I said all I had to say
his days were numbered he told me at the corner saloon
I saw a circus clown today bend over and shine a moon

Walt: Glad you enjoyed it thank you for reading

Balladeer: Thank You kindly,I really don't know what made me write this all I know I was sitting here late last night and thought I want to write a poem and sat in front of the computer and let it flow.

Marge: Thank You,
on a roll yes
with words
like mayo
topped with lettuce
green as life
sandwiched in between
are thoughts
expressed
to reach many miles.
Each bite a taste
of gratitude
for all the fine
poets here.

Oh yea, now I know for sure. You are nuts. You should be in the 'Stute.   But as long as you write great poetry like this, I won't make the call.

A very fine poem 'bout Balladeer,
But I think ya got it wrong?
He wasn't bendin' over dear,
That mustache is his thong!

Ruth: Thanks for reading and enjoying

Rebecca: Your frame of mind is right...LOL glad you liked and thanks for your kind words.

Toe:
Twas no Balldeer bending
actually it was your act offending
pants down at knees obscenely sending
what your mother nature so kindly was lending
you jumped the silly circus clown for payment pending.
Now the poor silly circus clown has interior wounds that need tending.
