Listen to poem:
There is a solace in his silence, a servant of his solitudes, As he comforts in compliance, a jester to the multitudes… He stands alone a neophyte, struggling within his confines, Actions that do excite, impugnable inhibition when he signs. Master of the satirical sad, a foreordained flounder of many, Like a narcotized nomad, wandering wills a penniless plenty… A calamitous circus in mind, his heart exposed in the limelight, Dolorous detentions unkind, amidst filling his formidable finite. A bombarding bombast, with words falling to the desolate deep, Sailing with a maudlin mast, wearing a facetious frown as to weep… Layered with lecherous lashes, upon wounding the sacrificial soul, His anguish turns to ashes, within continuation of his dramatic role. A buffoon protected by providence, metamorphic minstrel of laugh, Lacking in canopied confidence, recklessly writing his eternal epitaph… As he mimes until the morrows, living amongst a false fading reality, With a smolder to his sorrows, court jesting as a nilpotent nobody.

These unhppy clowns in circuses, they are made up to look permanently funny, but their hearts are not sunny. I wrote a Clown poem a year or two back and my clown's only joy was seeing the happy faces of innocent children laughing and enjoying his act. For that he lived. Great talented write Wingster. Terrific poem. Blessings, Jennster.

This line alone was a poem Winged Warrior. "A buffoon protected by providence, metamorphic minstrel of laugh," Wow! Marvelous!

Hello Winged Warrior, the children love the clowns, they make them laugh. A child favourite act is the clowns. Have a nice day my friend.
