The Barroom Clown

The patrons wait for him to come in each day
To hear him speak they would even pay
Always smiling, he laughs and sings
And my cash register constantly rings.
At 2 am the clock will chime
For now it’s almost closing time
There he sits the barroom clown,
I wonder where he goes when the bar shuts down.

    Bring in the clown to amuse the crowd seeking getaway to all stresses in life, what a fine tribute to clowns we consider as occasional friends. Appreciate so much for your kindness of sharing my poems to your friends, Susan. (^_^) Noel.
