The Clown Poem

The Clown

The children gather around to laugh
At the funny face that never frowns
His wild gestures all a big gaff
His clothes - a polka dotted gown
He will fool around on their behalf
Dances with a broom - a hoedown
Blows up balloons and scatters chaff
There's nothing funnier than a clown
Looking and acting like hobo riffraff.
